Keeping it safe
To ensure the safety of everyone in attendance, you'll need to abide by these rules:
1. Campus Patrol services must be in attendance for any student sponsored event where alcohol is served.
2. Members of the general public under the age of 19 are not permitted to attend wet/dry events on campus.
3. Once the above steps have been taken and you begin to advertise the event, in fairness to your patrons you should be stating on posters: "Must have current valid student ID and if planning on consuming alcohol must have picture ID with date of birth". This could be NB Liquor ID or a driver's license. This will facilitate better communication of the event requirements to those attending.
4. Campus Patrol will count patrons entering an event and will permit only the number established by the Fire Marshall’s office as per the posted Occupancy Rate for that room. There is absolutely no one on the campus who is permitted to waive the occupancy rate number and allow more people into an event than is stated on the card posted in that particular room. Again, please do not request the campus patrol to ignore this regulation. At no time should event organizers or SRC members interfere with the Campus Patrol in the performance of their duties.
5. Security would also request at least one member of the sponsoring group refrain from consuming alcohol during event so that Campus Patrol has someone responsible they can confer with throughout the evening and until the end of the event.
6. Outdoor events require a great deal of planning and the University must be consulted during the planning stages of such an event in order to avoid disappointment.
