Spring Safety | Summer Safety | Autumn Safety | Winter Safety
It's that time of year again. School's out, the weather's great, and you're going to want to play outside all day! Well, maybe not all day...
The summer months are meant for good times out in the sun. Just be sure to wear sunscreen to avoid a painful sunburn.
Make sure that you drink plenty of fluids so that you don't get dehydrated. Wear a hat and limit your time in the sun on those hot summer days to avoid getting heat stroke! Sure the summer is fun, but you still have to think safety.
The Grass is Growing
Do you have to cut the grass at your home? Where do you store the gasoline for your gas-powered lawnmower? If you said in an outside shed or in your garage (not attached to your house) then you're correct! You should never store gasoline inside your house. Also make sure that the gasoline is in an approved container and not just stored in an old milk jug.
Do your parents smoke? Remind them that they should never smoke while refilling gas-powered equipment. Also you should never leave your gas- powered equipment running while you're refueling.
Just running into the store?
Kids should NEVER be left in the car at any time, let alone during the summer. Even if it's only going to be for a short time, the car will heat up a lot faster than you would think.
What if someone steals the car and the kids are inside? It only takes a moment for it to happen. It's better to deal with the SMALL hassle of getting everyone out of the car, than the BIG troubles that could result if you don't.
For the same reason, you should not leave your pet in the car either!
