Stay Safe This 4th!

The 4th of July is coming up soon, which means we all need a refresher on holiday safety! Keep these safety tips in mind to ensure nothing ruins your holiday fun:

  • Be a smart swimmer. Pool activities are often associated with the 4th of July, so make sure you are a strong swimmer if you get in the pool. If your swimming isn’t that great, make sure you never swim by yourself.
  • Separate the kids from the fireworks. Consider attending a fireworks show put on by professionals as a much safer option.
  • Drink responsibly. You wouldn’t want to make an alcohol-induced mistake with dangerous fireworks and children around. The outcome could be catastrophic.
  • Stay hydrated. Keep your body full of water as you celebrate in the hot outdoors and protect yourself from a heat illness.
  • Don’t leave the food from the potluck out all day. This will increase the likelihood that bacteria in the food will multiply and cause you and your guests to become sick.
