Choose one session to attend on Thursday, March 28, 2019: either 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. or 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Both sessions are at Mercy Health Amherst HealthPlex, 47160 Hollstein Drive in Amherst. The ASK training has no cost.

The Ohio Instigative Unit will present the ASK training. Attendees receive a completion certificate from the Ohio Investigative Unit, and resources to equip their establishments.

“Those that serve and sell alcohol can help prevent injury and deaths on Lorain County roads,” says LCPH Health Commissioner David Covell, MPH, RS. “Learning how to respond when someone has had too much to drink helps keep everyone on the road safe.”

At the ASK training, learn to safely serve alcohol, check IDs and identify a fake ID. Also learn to identify signs and levels of intoxication. Reduce liability - learn how to keep yourself safe from legal action, fines, or jail time. Learn how to respond when someone is intoxicated in your establishment in order to keep the public safe from intoxicated drivers on the road.
