Reduction of Youth Access
What we do to reduce youth access
We work with law enforcement to offer free Responsible Beverage Server Training for local businesses who sell and serve alcohol. Servers who attend are taught which IDs are acceptable, how to recognize a fake ID, and signs of intoxication.
Compliance Checks test the capability of businesses selling or serving alcohol to catch underage customers who attempt to purchase alcohol. In 2015, the Fairmont Police Department conducted compliance checks on 28 local businesses, of which 26 passed.
Our sticker shock campaign at local liquor stores and businesses who sell off sale liquor is put on by MCSAP coalition members, community volunteers, law enforcement officers and youth coalition members to target consumers directly about the importance of keeping alcohol out of the hands of our youth.
Take it to the Box
You can help reduce access by safely disposing unused medication that could get into the hands of young people, by taking it to the box. Learn More
