This Labor Day Weekend, you along with thousands of other fans will make your way to Randall’s Island Park for Electric Zoo. Your enjoyment and safety are the top priorities at Electric Zoo and they should be for you and your crew too. Please watch out for each other, and know that help is all around you. If you see someone slip, trip, or overheat, someone who needs medical attention, rehydration, or just a helping hand, please keep the positive vibe alive, and be a friend to a friend in need.
Electric Zoo strongly advocates against the use of drugs. Avoiding drug use is the only way to completely avoid drug-related risks. You don’t need drugs anyway when world class music is swirling all around you. Know that mixing drugs and alcohol, or frequent and increased use, will increase your risks of life-threatening problems. Stay safe, stay hydrated, take frequent breaks, remember to eat, and you will successfully pull off having the time of your life!
Also, remember to practice moderation. If you’re tired stop dancing and if you’re thirsty drink water, but know that water alone won’t be enough to fuel your body and replenish the electrolytes you lose when you dance. Staying well fed and throwing in a sports drink or coconut water will keep your body well-nourished and in prime condition to dance into the night!
If you suspect that someone is ailing from a medical issue or the overuse of drugs or alcohol, seek immediate medical attention. Keep an eye out for these signs and symptoms in yourself and others, if you or a friend experience even just one sign seek medical help immediately!
- Blurred Vision
- Inability to talk
- Racing Heartbeat
- Muscle tremors
- Discolored lips or nail-beds
- Shallow breathing
Always keep in mind, if you require medical aid, then tell the medical staff everything because it may save your life!
There will be 2 Help Centers in the middle of the festival field marked with an icon and 4 medical aid stations marked with a red cross surrounding the site, all staffed with water and sports drinks if you need them. You will also find smiling faces wearing Zookeeper shirts with the icon on them walking around the site with water and electrolytes for you. There will be high speed free water stations on the East and West side of the field where you can fill up on water and free electrolytes.
Check out the map on the Electric Zoo app, festival booklet or neon pink HELP flyer that you can obtain as you enter the festival – and take a moment to familiarize yourself with these areas.blog comments powered by Disqus
