TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

University of Arizona students got an important lesson in safety today as they prepare for spring break. 

About 25 booths were set up on the UA Mall with a safety message for all. 

UA police want to make sure students stay safe, stay smart and stay alive. 

The Spring Break Safety Fair provided information to achieve those goals; from travel tips on popular spots like Rocky Point to safety information like who to call in Mexico should an emergency happen. 

Various law enforcement officers from the Tucson Police Department and Border Patrol were on hand to answer questions.  

Organizers also wanted to remind students about the dangers of drinking and driving.  Students had a chance to put on impairment goggles to take the drinking and driving cone test.
