I think someone is having an alcohol emergency. What do I do?

If someone has been drinking, you can tell something is wrong if they are:

  • Breathing irregularly
  • Cool or clammy to the touch
  • Unconscious
  • Not waking up while vomiting
  • Unusually pale or bluish

If you think someone has alcohol poisoning, call 911 immediately. Lay them on their side in a fetal position, and stay with them until the emergency personnel arrive. Do not worry about legal ramifications – your friend’s life may depend on your quick response.
