Keys to a Safe Family Summer

7/5/2019 (Permalink)

The kids are out of school and it’s time for summer adventures and quality memories with family and friends. No one likes to think about the dangers of summertime activities, but it’s always a good idea to prepare in advance to avoid the kinds of issues that could arise. 

Water Safety: 

  • Teach kids to swim. Formal swimming lessons can be an extremely important safety measure for children.
  • Learn CPR. At least one parent or family member should be trained in CPR. It could save a loved ones life.
  • Supervise children when they are in or around water. A watchful eye and quick action can make all the difference with water related accidents.
  • Wear properly fitted life vests when traveling in boats or watercraft. 
  • Install proper fencing around pools. 

Heat Safety:

  • Never leave infants, children or pets in hot cars. Even if the windows are down.
  • Outdoor activities should be planned at cooler times of day, including morning and evening hours.
  • Dress children in light weight, light colored, loose fitting clothing. 
  • Know the symptoms of heat related issues and illness. Seek medical attention if concerns arise.
  • Keep kids cool with showers, pools, baths and breaks when outdoors.

Sun Safety:

  • Make sure that children are wearing sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15 at all times when they are outside in the sun.
  • Cover up. Clothing can block harmful UV rays.

When spending time in the yard, make sure kids are using an effective insect repellent. Learn ways to make your yard a tick free zone. Or check children daily for ticks if they have been outside. Take simple steps to make sure that summer stays fun day and night.
