Safe in the Sun!

You can feel it. The sun on your face, the cool breeze through your hair, and the refreshing thought of your toes in the water. Summertime has arrived! With that thought there are several things we need to keep in mind.
  • Kids are no longer in school and are exploring their new found freedom. Please be aware of them riding their bikes or playing with friends by the roads and streets.
  • Warmer weather means more recreation outside. Remember to wear your life jackets when out in the boats or on jet skis. Scan the area for other boaters, skiers, and tubers. Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Summertime can have many different temperature changes and with that bring different weather patterns. Make sure that your kids know what to do during a server weather storm and were to go in case of a tornado.
  • Crowded places are going to become more common as people are out enjoying the weather at the parks, zoos, malls, or beaches. Make sure to talk to your children about stranger danger and what they should do if they find themselves in that situation.
  • After you get done going for a hike, doing yard work, or just enjoying the time outside make sure to take a few minutes to look for ticks to help avoid limes disease.
If we all try to practice the tips above it will make for a more enjoyable summer and hopefully one that can be spent outside of the hospital emergency room.
