Ahhh, Summertime!  After the Winter-That-Would-Not-End, it feels amazing to welcome the warm summer weather.  It’s time for beach vacations (or stay-cations), boating, grilling out, pool parties, and that hot summer sun.  It’s also a season full of hidden dangers so here’s a primer on how to keep you – and your family – safe this summer.


Boating Safety Tips:
– Wear properly fitted life jackets every time you go boating.
– Be weather-wise and check local conditions before departing.
– Operate at safe speeds.
– Don’t overload your boat.
– Develop a ‘Float Plan’ and give it to a friend or family member who will be staying ashore.  A Float Plan  includes: trip itinerary, boat description and registration, types of communication and signal equipment on board and contact information for every person on board.

Grilling Safety Tips:
– Be sure to have a fire extinguisher close at hand.
– Get a food thermometer to ensure your food is thoroughly cooked.
– Use a fan to keep from breathing in the smoke, which contains carbon monoxide & other chemicals.
– Keep your grill clean to avoid grease fires, which can quickly get out of control.
– Check your manual: it will tell you the correct placement for your grill and maintenance tips.

Sun Safety Tips:
– Cover up!  Wear hats, sunglasses and loose, lightweight clothing that covers your neck, & shoulders.
– Limit sun exposure during the hottest part of the day.
– Apply sunscreen (SPF of 30+) every two hours.
– Stay in the shade as much as possible.
– Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and sports drinks.
– Take breaks.  All that playing in the heat can cause heat stress.

 Pool Safety Tips:
– Ensure that children are always supervised.
– 
Never swim alone.
– Life jackets are a better precaution than “floaties”.
– Ensure that pool is enclosed by a 4-foot fence and doors to your home are alarmed.
– Keep safety equipment (a shepherd’s hook and life-ring) close to pool.
– If using a “baby-pool”, empty it after each use.
– If a child goes missing, check the pool first.

Summer is packed with sun and fun; make sure your summer ROCKS by staying safe.
