Title: Top 10 Summer Safety Tips

Top 10 Summer Safety Tips
Summer fun is truly something special, but
summer safety should always be a priority for
you, your friends and your family. When preparing
for your favorite summer activities, dont forget
to follow these summer safety tips to make sure
everyone has a great time without any of dangers
the warm months can bring.
  • Understand SPF and Use Sun Protection
  • Know your SPF numbers and what sort of SPF
    protection to buy for your family. Extra-high SPF
    numbers arent nearly so important as careful,
    effective application on all exposed skin.
    Todays spray-based sunscreen is usually more
    child and teenage friendly, since its a lot
    easier to apply than oily lotions. UPF or
    ultraviolet protection factor is used to rate
    summer clothing for protection, another valuable
    specification to keep in mind when headed up to

2. Protect Against Mosquitos and Other
Threats Mosquitos carry some of summers worst
diseases (Lyme, Zika, etc.), but they are also
very difficult to avoid without proper care. If
you are going to be spending time near open
water, especially standing water, protect
yourself from mosquitos by covering arms and
legs, and using effective repellents like
deet. Protect against wasps, hornets, and other
bugs by avoiding their nests. While bright colors
are a good idea in the forest, in other
environments try to stay away from bright or
floral patterns, which are an attractor for these
stinging insects.
3. Remember Helmets and Kneepads From skating on
the street to well, nearly any other type of
summer sport, protection is important. Equip your
kids with their helmets for extra protection, but
dont stop there. Kneepads protect from scraps
and hot metal surfaces, and you should encourage
their use for any wheeled or motor-related
4. Practice Proper Safety Near Water A vast
number of unfortunate summer deaths are caused by
drowning. If you or your family are enjoying pool
activities or water sports, always go in pairs
and make sure that kids are under constant adult
supervision, as well as equipped with the proper
flotation devices. As fun as alcohol may be while
out on the water, its also a really bad idea.
Adult water-related deaths are frequently caused
by drinking on watercraft or before swimming. If
your summer fun involves a few beers, then enjoy
your water activities first Drink when you are
done and back on land.
5. When it Heats Up, Plan Hydration
Carefully Dehydration is no fun at best and
deadly at worst. If you are heading into hot
temperatures, make clear plans for water Bring
along your own water storage and make sure you
have a couple liters for every person, even if
you are just headed out for an afternoon. If it
is particularly hot, make sure you frequently
stop in the shade and take a drink of water to
keep from sweating out too much.
6. When Exploring, Coordinate Times, Directions,
and Group-Ups Exploring festivals, new towns,
hiking paths, and even other countries are very
popular summer activities. They should also
involve proper planning. Make sure everyone has
an exploring buddy and a way to keep in contact.
Have everyones phone number for contact, and
arrange for specific times and places to meet up
once exploring is finished.
7. Be More Careful in the Car Summer is a more
dangerous time to be on the road The combination
of drivers new to the area, drivers who may be
acting more careless, and more bikers can lead to
disaster. So remember to check your car, practice
good maintenance, follow local traffic laws, and
stay safe on the road.
8. Use Licensing and Safety Courses From
dirt-biking and off-roading to jet-skiing and
flying drones, a lot of todays summer activities
involve advanced equipment. Dont let you or your
family jump into this equipment without the
proper training! Make sure everyone takes the
right classes, obtains any important licenses,
and follows the right codes for their summer fun.
It takes a little bit of preparation, but it
vastly increases safety and avoids any hefty
fines you may occur if no one knows the rules.
9. Stay Away from Activities That Are Simply Too
Dangerous This is particularly important as a
parent, because while summer is about fun and
even testing boundaries, parents still need to
draw lines when activities become too dangerous.
It is too dangerous to let kids go unsupervised
or without the proper equipment, no matter how
much they may want to do something. Certain
things, like trampolines, have proven too
dangerous to use, especially without the right
trampoline insurance (the fact specific insurance
exists should be a warning sign). Just because
something is popular or trending doesnt mean it
should be allowed or encouraged.
10. Protect Food and Wash Your Hands Keep food
sealed and covered until it is ready to eat, and
try to keep it out of the sun if possible. When
grilling, make sure meats are properly
refrigerated before use and thoroughly cooked.
When dealing with any kind of food, wash your
hands first to prevent contamination. These
summer home safety tips are simple, but easy to
overlook during summer activities.
