Dover-Foxcroft – The Piscataquis Public Health Council, our region's Healthy Maine Partnership, will be hosting an off premises alcohol seller server training on Thursday, June 12, 2008, 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm in the Piscataquis Room at the Resource Center, Mayo Regional Hospital. There is no cost to participate. This training will work with area retailers and their employees who sell liquor for consumption off premise.
The program will cover how to identify minors and visibly intoxicated person, intervention to prevent a visibly intoxicated person from driving, how alcohol is ingested and metabolized by the body, what alcoholism is and how alcohol affects the body, false identification detection and good carding policy, the importance of good written serving policies and the Liquor Liability Act.
Frank Lyon, of BC Consultants, a twenty-three year veteran of Liquor Licensing Enforcement will lead the training and is a certified instructor with the Maine Criminal Academy. This training is a Maine Office of Substance Abuse approved training and will help retailers prevent costly violations and civil suites, instill more confidence in alcohol servers and potentially reduce Liquor Liability Insurance premiums (dependant upon insurance carrier approval).
Seating is limited, please reserve by June 10, 2008 by calling Christie Whitten, Community Partnership Specialist at 564–4184. No cost to retailers and their employees. Retailers who attend will receive a free ID Guide!
