With celebrations for St. Patrick's Day the next two weekends, local safety services want to make sure the celebrating remains safe.

The Lima Fire Department will be out checking bars and clubs to be sure they are in compliance with fire codes. That means all entrances and exits need to accessible in case of emergency, so people can get out and safety crews can get in. Owners also need to make sure they're not exceeding the maximum occupancy for their establishment. With more people out celebrating the holiday, some bar owners might re-arrange their establishment, which may also be in violation of code.

Local law enforcement will also be out during the holiday weekends. They'll be looking for driving violations along with operating under the influence. The message they want to get across to people out celebrating, is make a plan before heading out.
