Dr. Mitchell Forman of Touro University Nevada Medical School wants to remind people to be safe during their New Year's celebrations. 

He says planning ahead is the best thing to do, since alcohol affects judgment. You should know your health issues and what your limit will be. If you are drinking, do so in moderation and remember to keep hydrated.  Eating fatty foods may also help. 

New Year's Eve in Las Vegas may be a cold one, so partiers should also dress warmly and avoide hypothermia.
