Summer Safety Tips – Top Activities

With summer in full swing, we're beginning the process of getting back to a new normal. While no one knows for sure what that will look like, there are still plenty of fun activities for the whole family while summer camps, organized sports, community pools, music festivals and other large gatherings are mostly on hold. Here are a few summer safety tips to get your summer off to a smart start.

Grilling

  • Never leave any open flame or heat source lit and unattended
  • Never grill indoors—not in the house, camper, tent or any enclosed area
  • Keep kids and pets away from grills and fires
  • Place fire pits and barbecues well away from structures and overhanging branches
  • Wear fireproof oven mitts and have a fire extinguisher nearby
  • Don’t try to light fires in windy or wet conditions and never use accelerants, garbage or other materials to get a fire going

 

Swimming

  • Constantly supervise children around water and avoid distractions. If you have a pool, secure it with appropriate barriers.
  • In the event of an emergency, reach or throw an object to the person in trouble. Don’t go in! You could become a victim yourself.
  • Don’t share goggles, nose clips, snorkels or other personal items
  • Do not wear face coverings in the water as it may be difficult to breathe
  • And never, ever swim alone

 

Fireworks

  • Never hold lighted fireworks in your hands or aim them at anyone
  • Don’t let kids play with fireworks
  • Keep a bucket of water or a hose nearby
  • Use fireworks away from houses
  • Don’t shoot fireworks while under the influence of alcohol
  • Never try to re-light a firework that has malfunctioned

As hurricane Florence approaches, follow these tips to keep your family safe

Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall on the East Coast by Friday morning. While you prepare to evacuate or shelter in place, here are some helpful safety tips from your temporary housing source. 

      

If you are advised or ordered to evacuate

·         Follow all directions and orders from local officials and leave immediately when instructed to do so.

·         Bring emergency supplies, including: a first aid kit, medicine, food, water, formula and diapers, toiletries, cell phones, radios, and batteries.

·         Take extra cash and copies of important papers such as insurance policies.

·         Pack blankets, sleeping bags, books, and games.

·         Unplug appliances, turn off utilities such as electricity and the main water valve.

·         Lock the windows and doors of your home.

·         Don't forget about your pets! Pack their food, beds, a toy and any meds. 

 

If you are not told to evacuate

·         STAY AT HOME! Leave the roads available for those who must evacuate. If you absolutely must leave your home, NEVER drive through floodwaters. Turn around, don't drown.

·         Clean your bathtub with bleach and fill it with water for washing and flushing (not drinking).

·         Set your refrigerator to maximum cold and keep it closed.

·         Turn off your utilities if told to do so by local officials.

 

During the storm

·         Go to an interior room and stay away from windows and doors, even though they're covered.

·         During very strong winds, lie under something sturdy.

·         Do not go outside, including during passage of the eye of the hurricane.
