Useful Summer Safety Tips

Summer can be the most fun of all the seasons, but there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure a safe, and happy summer for all. Here are some things to consider:

  • Sunscreen or stay out of the sun. One out of every five Americans will develop skin cancer. Additionally, approximately 23% of your lifetime exposure to sun takes place before you turn 18. Educating your children when they are young about the importance of sunscreen is key to ensuring it’s a habit they keep for life.
  • Being safe in the water. One out every five drowning victims are kids under the age of 14. Most of these deaths do not occur in lakes or oceans, but rather bathtubs and pools. Always be aware of your child’s location.
  • Heat Illnesses. It is incredibly important to stay hydrated, and in the shade as much as possible while enduring these hot summer temperatures. Heat stroke is a life-threatening illness and a medical emergency that can be easily prevented.
