Summer Safety

Summer is a time filled with fun outdoor activities. Many families enjoy camping trips, picnicking at parks, or taking walks together. Kids spend countless hours riding bike, swimming, and playing outside with friends. Enjoying these activities is an important part of summer vacation. To make the most of your time outside, consider the safety tips below.
  • Wear a helmet when riding bike, scooters, skateboards, 4-wheelers, etc. Parents should also set a good example for their kids by wearing a helmet.
  • Closely supervise children when they are swimming in pools, lakes, creeks, and other water locations. Don’t let cell phones and conversations with friends distract from supervising kids in the water.
  • Watch for ticks and mosquitoes. When playing outside, children should wear an appropriate insect repellant to reduce bites.
  • Be aware of the sun. Try to plan activities to avoid peak sun hours, wear protective clothing, and follow the directions for applying sunscreen.
  • Stay hydrated when outdoors. Don’t wait until you feel thirsty to get a drink, instead drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after outside activities.
  • Keep children away from the grill and campfires.
  • More information about these and other tips can be found online at
Memories of fun family times will last a lifetime. Take a moment to keep your family safe while participating in these summer activities.
