Staying Safe This Summer

The warm summer weather can lead to more outdoor activities. Although spending more time outdoors is good for your health, it is important to make sure you stay safe during the hot months. Following these summer safety tips can ensure you have a safe and fun summer.

  • Prevent heat illness. The hot weather can lead to life-threatening emergencies. It is important to know the risks and warning signs of heat illnesses and how to treat them.
  • Stay protected from the sun. Always wear sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15 whenever you go outside. Wear protective clothing, such as a wide brimmed hat, and make sure to stay hydrated.
  • Avoid poison ivy. Make sure to wear long pants and sleeves when going on a hike. Do not let your pets run through areas with poison ivy.
  • Keep pesky bugs away. Use bug spray that contains DEET to keep mosquitoes, insects, and ticks away. Make sure to check everyone, including your pets, for ticks after going on a hike.
