Play it smart when hosting your summer parties

It's the season for pool and barbecue parties so if you are hosting, plan ahead for your guests' safety.
“Summer get-togethers can be a great way to reconnect with family and friends and create lasting memories,” says Glenn Cooper from Aviva Canada. “It's important however, that you take accountability ahead of time to prevent accidents both on and off your property.”
Cooper suggests these simple tips the next time you have guests over:
Serve smart: If you provide alcohol to someone who injures themselves or someone else, either at your house or on their way home, you could be liable. Take the following precautions:
• Arrange for safe rides after the party;
• Provide sufficient overnight parking;
• Don't make alcohol the focus of the event.
Swim smart: If your guests come to beat-the-heat in your pool, take the following safety precautions:
• Ensure children are wearing life jackets;
• Keep lifesaving equipment handy and nearby;
• Never allow anyone to enter the pool after consuming alcohol.
With these tips in mind, you should be all set to send out the invites for any celebration. More information is available from your insurance broker or from
