Summer Outdoor Safety Tips

Jonathan Hernandez3 months ago

With July upon us, here are some important things to consider if you’ll be spending some time outdoors.

Outdoor Safety Tips

July is here, and that means that many people are going to be spending time outdoors. Healthychildren.org reports that the following measure should be taken into consideration when spending time outdoors this holiday weekend.

Fireworks Safety

  • Improper use of fireworks can result in blindness, scarring, burns, and, in some cases, death.
  • It’s suggested that families attended fireworks displays run by professionals instead of using fireworks at home.
Mosquito Safety
  • If possible, remove stagnant water sources, which serve as mosquito breeding areas.
  • Keep in mind that scented soaps, hairsprays, and lotions attract mosquitos, as well as bright colored clothes and flowery prints.
  • The best mosquito repellents are those that contain DEET.
Bicycle Safety
  • Helmets should be worn by children and adults any time they are riding a bicycle.
  • Make sure the bicycle that your child is riding is suited to fit the child and is not too big for them to operate.
