As summer draws near, it is important that you stay safe while having fun. There are a few aspects of summer safety that you should know about.
If you have a pool, then you are responsible for the safety of others. It is best to have a fence or enclosure around the pool with a lock to keep children and unwanted guests out. You should also keep a first aid kit with a flotation device near the pool. However, you should be sure all toys are out of the water when it is not in use as children may want to go after the toy, which can pose a serious drowning hazard.
Nothing says summer like enjoying food off the grill. There are some aspects of grill safety you will want to keep in mind. For instance, make sure that the grill is not too close to the house or near any flammable objects. With this, make sure children are not allowed near the grill so there are no accidents. Be sure to limit alcoholic beverages while grilling as this can be dangerous.
Wearing sunscreen is important during the summer. Sunburns can lead to skin cancer and are also quite painful. You may also find it helpful to dress yourself and children in UV blocking clothing. You should also make sure you are well hydrated during the summer as dehydration and heat stroke are very dangerous.
