Massapequa Takes Action Coalition (MTAC) supports Massapequa businesses and their employees that serve or sell alcohol by hosting FREE TIPS Training, a skills based training designed to prevent intoxication, drunk driving and underage drinking. TIPS stands for Training Intervention ProcedureS and is an approved alcohol training awareness program by the New York State Liquor Authority. The training is part of MTAC's Drug Free Communities
Grant initiatives to reduce underage drinking, intoxication and drunk driving. Click here for our TIPS Training flyer.
MTAC’s TIPS Training is supported by the Town of Oyster Bay, Nassau County Police Department, YES Community Counseling Center and Massapequa Chamber of Commerce.
Whether you are an Off-Premise (convenience store, grocery store, liquor store, etc.) or On-Premise (bars, restaurants, etc.) business, the innovative training enhances the fundamental “people skills" of servers, sellers and consumers of alcohol. The FREE training, delivered by YES Community Counseling Center (YESCCC), provides the knowledge and confidence to recognize potential alcohol-related problems and effectively intervene to prevent alcohol-related tragedies.
Businesses and organizations that use TIPS benefit immediately by lowering risk and creating a safer, more responsible work environment. In addition, TIPS training can:
- Reduce exposure to alcohol liability lawsuits and reduce penalties for alcohol violations;
- Lower insurance premiums;
- Improve customer service and satisfaction; and
- Promote community safety.
If you are a business that serves or sells alcohol and are interested in registering for the next TIPS Training, please contact Cathy Samuels, Program Director of Massapequa Takes Action Coalition at firstname.lastname@example.org or (516) 799-3000 x131.
