The Arcadia Police Department released a list of safety tips to consider during the New Year's Eve celebrations.

Here are the safety tips from the police department's blog:

•Don't Drink and Drive!

•Use a designated driver or, if need be, call Jan's Don't Drive Drunk Detour Program for a ride home for you and your car. See Jan's Towing website for details.

•DO NOT fire weapons into the air. Bullets and projectiles can travel long distances causing injury and death. You have no control where a projectile will land when fired indiscriminately into the air.

•Stay inside at the stroke of midnight! Celebrate with friends and family indoors.

•Keep an eye on your pets. Loud noises, fireworks, gunshots, all can be frightening to animals. Keep your pets indoors or consult your veterinarian for options. Make sure they are wearing collars with identification should they become lost.
