Keeping Up with Summer Safety

Summertime means several months of camping, boating, family vacations, grilling out and other recreation. Opportunities to spend time with friends and family can quickly turn into a ride in an ambulance. To avoid any catastrophes this summer, keep in mind these summer safety tips.

Pool and Lake Safety

  • Don’t leave children unsupervised, even for just a few moments.
  • Make sure your pool is locked securely with self-locking and self-closing gates so children can’t enter unsupervised.
  • Never dive in an area less than 6 ft.
  • Keep a safety kit close by and make sure every one using the pool knows where it is and how to use it.
  • Don’t operate a boat or jet ski under the influence of alcohol.
  • While operating a boat or jet ski, wear the proper flotation devices.
  • Do not operate a boat or jet ski in the swimming areas of a lake.
  • Only let experienced drivers operate the boat or jet ski.
  • Always be aware of other boats, skiers and divers.

Food Safety

  • Keep perishable products in a cooler filled with ice.
  • Never use the same utensils to serve meat as you did to cook it.
  • Cook beef, veal, lamb steaks, roasts and chops to 145°F.
  • Refrigerate food as soon as possible after use.

Alcohol Safety

  • Always have a designated driver.
  • Keep alcohol out of the hands of kids.
  • Know your limit.
