An article on recently highlighted the danger of trying to “scare” teens away from alcohol consumption.

While parents hold most of the responsibility when it comes to teaching their kids about drinking, servers of alcohol also have a role to play.

Responsible Service of Alcohol rules mandate that a person be 18 years or older before being served alcohol. Workers in the hospitality industry where alcohol is served need to take this responsibility seriously and always ask for an ID to prove a person is of legal drinking age.

To learn more about how to serve alcohol responsibly, servers must undergo Responsible Service of Alcohol training (RSA training).
