CHAMBER NEWS: ‘Serving Alcohol Responsibly’ Training in February

On Thursday, February 27, the Town of Pagosa Springs and the Chamber of Commerce will co-host a ‘Serving Alcohol More Responsibly’ class. While this is not T.I.P.S. training, this class is conducted by a state of Colorado Liquor Enforcement investigator, Chris Clements. The class is offered free to all of our restaurant and liquor establishments — their owners and employees, non-profit agency event planners and volunteers, and basically anyone interested in learning how to serve alcohol more safely.

The class will cover topics such as responsible server training (again, this is not TIPS certification), hours of operation for serving alcohol, detecting fake IDs, overserving, criminal and civil liability for a business owner and servers, donated alcohol, purchasing alcohol, alcohol storage and more. Towards the end of the class, Chris will focus on Special Events permits and more. The class is free and will be held at the Ross Aragon Community Center in the South Conference room from 2 to 4pm. Chris is also willing to stay longer should there be more interest and questions.

Proof of attendance indicating staff or volunteers having received some kind of serving alcohol safely training is important for business and special event insurance coverage. While we want everyone to have fun at our establishments and events, we also want to minimize our liability and make sure that people are behaving responsibly when consuming alcohol. We would appreciate people RSVPing for the class so that we can set up the room for the correct number of people. Please RSVP to Rick Artis at the Chamber at [email protected] or call 970-264-2360.

Walk-ins will be accommodated on a space-available basis.
