The YMCA of El Paso will host a state-of-the-art Responsible Beverage Service training program for local servers and sellers of alcoholic beverages.
Research has found that responsible beverage service training can reduce excessive alcohol use and related problems if well-implemented in commercial and nightlife settings. Topics covered by the training will include bar practices that can increase profits and reduce obviously intoxicated customers, policies and procedures that reduce insurance claims, best practices for sellers and servers, and methods businesses can use for protecting their liquor licenses.
The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) estimates the cost of underage drinking, including health care, lost productivity, criminal justice, and traffic crash costs, to be $1.8 billion per year in Texas. This amount allocated based on population amounts to an economic burden of $48 million every year for El Paso.
The YMCA is offering the training free of charge, thanks to the partnership of the Paso del Norte Health Foundation’s Shift+ Initiative and the Rio Grande Safe Communities Coalition.
