Straight Up was happy to be involved with an important video shoot with Project SAFER, an organization that assesses and helps to troubleshoot alcohol safety issues at public events in Ventura County. Production was completed for a series of instructional videos that will help to train alcohol servers.

Project SAFER video shoot, 2/10/11

Katherine from Straight Up and Kim from Project SAFER discuss a scene at the shoot.

Project SAFER strives to enhance public safety at special events in the County of Ventura. By assessing special events, we are able to identify issues of public health and safety as well as identify if alcohol service is consistently administered within the laws and guidelines established by State and local authorities.

Project SAFER works closely with event organizers and local law enforcement to assist in creating policies to reduce alcohol-related violence, injury, vehicle crashes, unlawful alcohol service, and youth access to alcohol. MORE
