Happy 4th of July! Safety First!

4th of July Safety Tips

With America’s birthday just around the corner, it is time to think about ways in which you can enhance safety on this notoriously dangerous holiday. While it is okay to enjoy yourself, it is important that you have fun with a safety first mentality. Keep these 4th of July safety tips in mind while celebrating:

  • Hosting a 4th of July BBQ? Don’t forget to practice safe food handling and keep your eyes on the grill at all times! It is also important to avoid decorating the grill area with American cheer as combustibles and grilling never pair well.
  • Road tripping to celebrate America’s independence? Keep your eyes on the road! So many drivers do not practice safe driving habits during the holidays due to the anticipation of their long awaited holiday vacation. Keep your eyes peeled to ensure safety.
  • Lather up with sunscreen! The last thing you want is to wake up on July 5th with blistering sunburns! It is not enough to just put sunscreen on in the morning either. Bring a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 35 with you and keep reapplying throughout the celebration.
