The rising temperatures during the summer make it a perfect time to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family. However, you should keep these safety tips in mind so you can focus on having fun.
Read and follow the manufacturers instructions when using fireworks, and keep them away from children at all times.
Talk with local officials or lifeguards before swimming to make sure water conditions are safe.
Make sure grills are constantly monitored and placed at least 3 feet away from all other objects.
Heat and Sun Safety
Protect your skin from the sun by applying sunscreen regularly, and by wearing clothing with tightly woven fabrics, a hat and sunglasses.
Insect Bits and Allergies
Use water-proof insect rellants to prevent insect bits. Also, consider taking over-the-counter medications to alleviate any allergy symptoms.
Keep in mind that exposure to the sun makes it easy to get dehydrated. Make sure to drink some water every 15 min, even if you aren’t thirsty.
