Training teaches responsible beverage service
by Krystal Paco
Guam - Learning to check IDs and saying no to individuals who are too intoxicated are just some of the skills bar owners, managers, servers, and sellers will learn at the free responsible beverage service training set for next week. Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse public information officer Sara Dimla says the trainings are made possible through the agency, the Department of Youth Affairs, and the Department of Public Health.
She said, "We have a big problem with binge drinking and underage drinking. We feel this is one of the ways that we can solve that problem by bringing that responsibility to the people at the forefront, like the people who are serving alcohol we need them to know how they can enforce the laws from behind the bar."
The training is set for March 18 from 1-4pm at the Sinajana Mayor's Office. Bars and restaurants can also schedule trainings for their employees.
