Agencies strengthen connection to community through Server Training

Minden, Nevada- Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office took their first step in rolling out their campaign aimed to help our community stay safer by providing server intervention training to employees at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Lucky Beaver, Dotty’s, and Lake Tahoe AleWorX.

“The goal of the training was reaffirming businesses they have us for additional support, but also equip staff with intervention steps encouraging locals and visitors to utilize safe ride options and to plan ahead,” said Sheriff Coverley. “We anticipate there will still be crowds this holiday season and we want to encourage everyone to have a good time but act responsibly.”

During the 30-minute training, the Sheriff and Undersheriff outlined:

  • How to recognize signs in patrons of too much alcohol to drive
  • Effective ways to intervene to prevent potential problems
  • How to handle intoxicated patrons with greater confidence
  • Assisting patrons with safe transportation alternatives

“You can’t take back the choice to drive intoxicated,” said Fire Marshal Guevin. “Choosing a safe ride alternative gets you and others home safe and it takes everyone in the basin being aware of these alternatives and taking action.”

“Douglas County remains committed to ensuring the safety of our residents and visitors while supporting our local economy,” said Commissioner Rice. “I am pleased to see public safety, business and government working together to spread this preventative message.”
