RESOLUTION 2017 - THE MESSAGE

With Resolution 2017 on the horizon, the importance of safety cannot be stressed enough. Safety is not just about what we do. Your efforts are key to making all events safe.

Being prepared, staying hydrated, taking personal responsibility, looking out for others are just some of the things you can do.

“When we started our health and safety campaign The Message, we weren’t totally sure how’d you react. But we’ve been blown away by the response. You amplified The Message about acting responsibly and taking care of each other, and made it part of our unique culture.” – Chad Anderson

Let's act responsibly. We are a community and we need to set our own boundaries.

THE MISSION STATEMENT

The USC family has a passion for dance music that extends far beyond the music itself. Our united state of consciousness is a safety-minded one, and USC has an ongoing dedication to create the healthiest possible dance environment possible for all of you! The time has come for expectations to be set for all of our behavior and for all to be encouraged to take responsibility for their own actions. If you feel overwhelmed, do not be afraid to ask for help. It’s our mission to have help readily available.

Our community is what keeps us going through the long days and sleepless nights

The Message

Together, we will ensure that our music, art, and culture stay positive.

On the dance floor, we're all best friends. Keep an eye out for our volunteer rovers who'll lend a hand if needed.

We commit to providing events that are safe, secure, and healthy so you all can focus on having a great time!

Our staff, security and medics never judge, so talk to them if you need help or see someone who does.

The music doesn't stop, but you should. Take breaks and pace yourself, dancing is hard work!

Take care of each other. If you see someone who could use help, don't just walk by. Stop and talk.

Water equals life. We have free water readily available throughout the venue to replenish your body and keep you hydrated all night long.

KEEPING HYDRATED IS A MAJOR PART OF ATTENDING ANY EVENT! USC HAS MADE THE COMMITMENT TO PROVIDE FREE WATER STATIONS AT ALL USC FESTIVALS!

The Message

Staying hydrated is key to busting a move all night long! You will be able to purchase a reusable, customized water bottle from any USC merchandise booth inside the event. These are allowed at all future events and may be refilled for free at the water stations for the lifetime of the bottle. Buy it once and never pay for water at another USC event again! Additionally, plastic water bottles purchased inside the venues can be refilled for free at the water stations. Remember, the reusable bottles not only save your body, but save our environment by reducing the number of plastic bottles used at any given event!

ALL WATER STATIONS AT RESOLUTION WILL BE EASILY IDENTIFIABLE! SMILING VOLUNTEERS WILL BE STANDING BY TO HELP KEEP YOU HYDRATED!

The Message

It's best to plan ahead so you have a safe and easy ride ready at the end of the night. If your plan falls through, our staff can help you make arrangements to get home safely, just ask!

ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY

– All USC Events have a strict zero tolerance policy when it comes to illegal substances. At every show, there’ll be extra security at the door and security staff inside the event venue.
– Good harm reduction means we offer everyone help who needs it. While we have medical personnel on site, we assume you’d rather not see them. Enjoy the music until the very last beat.
– Simply put, there is no safe drug, and no safe dosage. There’re so many variables – the drug content, your body chemistry, how much water you drink, how long you dance without a break – that the best way we ensure everyone goes home safe is to say: no drugs allowed.
– For our music and community to grow and continue, we need people to take care of each other. We want to create memories to last your entire life. Our most important goal is keeping our community positive for everyone.

Those that get into drug or alcohol trouble at events are often with friends who don't know what to do. Washington State law protects you, so get help at the first sign of trouble.
