Authorities and Hospitals Prepare Themselves for Celebrations

Usually during this time of the year, there are thousands of revelers who drink in access, which leads to a lot of incidents. In order to make sure that there are no drastic incidents that take place, some of the hospitals have been places on high alert to be ready. These protocols are generally used only on the eve of New Year.
