Adults and children alike look forward to summer, when days are longer, schedules are relaxed, and weekends are filled with fun activities. Hiking, swimming, boating, and camping are all popular activities, and what better way to end a summer day than with a cookout and fireworks with friends. While many warm weather recreational pursuits are good for your health and well-being and a great way to relax while getting both fresh air and exercise, it is also important to keep safety in mind. Summer can mean an increase in serious accidents and injuries for children as well as adults. To prevent mishaps from ruining your summer fun, keep these summertime safety tips handy and share them with your family and friends.
We all look forward to lazy summer days filled with food, family, and fun, but overdoing it can end up resulting in serious and even potentially life threatening injuries. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), three areas in which adults should be most concerned center around heat, water, and fireworks safety:
As with any activity, if you are in or near the water you should limit your alcohol intake to avoid accidents and injuries.
Wait until you are sure bottle rockets or other fireworks have finished burning before approaching them, and do not attempt to relight a ‘dud’ or firework that has gone out.
