Safety Corner! Your Guide to Summer Safety
  • Car Safety...Remember to drive safely and use proper child seating and safety belts.
  • Summer Heat...Children are smaller than adults and they dehydrate quicker. When kids play, they sweat. Bring them inside often for water and snack breaks.
  • Insect Bites...Discourage children from getting excited and moving rapidly when they see insects - movement encourages insects to bite. Keep sugary foods and trash cans away from outside play areas.
  • Bike Riding...Children must always wear a helmet when riding a bike or skateboarding. Brain injury is the most serious of injuries.
  • Water Safety...Never leave them unsupervised around water. Always wear a safety approved life jacket when on a lake, river or ocean.
  • Your Car...Many parents mistakenly think they can leave a child in a vehicle while running a "quick" errand. Heat is much more dangerous to children than it is to adults. When left in a hot vehicle, a young child's core body temperature can increase three to five times faster than that of an adult causing permanent injury or death. Children should never be left alone inside of your car, even for a few minutes.
As school's out for summer, kids are everywhere and parents should be too. Even though your children may be older, make sure you're on watch, so that you won't have to take a trip to the emergency room. Enjoy the summer with your children - SAFELY!
