Many are getting ready to kick off summer and celebrate this Memorial Day weekend.
Although summer is a time to be outside and enjoy the weather, this time of year poses many dangers for people as well.
Here are a few safety tips to follow to have a safe start to summer and enjoy the long weekend ahead.
- Driving: If you plan on traveling, give your car a checkup before heading out on the road. Be a responsible, alert and cautious driver. Remember to never drink and drive and give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination.
- Grilling: Always supervise a grill when in use. Keep the grill out in the open, away from the house, trees and anything that could catch fire.
- Water Safety: Always have an adult watching children swim. If you plan on boating or doing any other water recreational activity, be sure to always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket.
- Fireworks are a popular activity for holidays. However, if not handled properly, fireworks can cause burns and eye injuries in kids and adults. Make sure your family knows about firework safety this summer.
