Nearly one in three U.S. adults will develop skin cancer during their lifetime. Be sure to equip yourself & family with a high SPF-sunscreen lotion.
The sun's rays are no joke--do the soak (with sunscreen!)
In addition to its burning potential, the sun can also cause people to overheat, particularly in the long, hot summer days.
While drinking plenty of water and avoiding the hottest periods of the day can help a lot, it's also a good plan to consider the following tips:
Learn the signs of heat rash. This pink rash looks like tiny pimples and indicates someone has spent too much time in the heat.
Monitor your body closely for signs you may be too hot, such as headaches, dizziness, and dry mouth.
Remember it gets hot inside too. If you don't have air conditioning, keep clothing light and use fans to cool rooms.
Know you can become overheated on cloudy days just as easily as sunny ones. Don't let the weather fool you into thinking the heat isn't a danger.
Water is wonderful, but be safe!
Water is another source of summer fun and another hazard. According to the CDC, more than 3,500 people die annually from drowning.
In addition, keep the following tips in mind:
Don't forget to consider water quality. Before heading to the beach, check for contamination with harmful bacteria like E. coli. Most public beaches will post a sign to close the beach in the event of contamination, but you can also find closure updates on local news sites.
Use caution near flowing waterways, as well as pools and lakes. Rivers and creeks can experience a sudden rise in water levels in early summer, and this can take people by surprise. Keep this in mind when fishing or playing near moving water.
When camping, don't drink lake or river water unless you use a water purifier or are in a place known for clean waterways. A variety of micro-organisms live in contaminated water and can make you ill.
Bugs don't need to be buzzing around!
As the temps rise, so does the insect population. Ticks, mosquitoes, hornets and bees all pose a potential threat for sickness; not just itchy bites. Have your family spray with a Deet-based insect repellent while having fun outdoors & carry a first-aid kit in your traveling vehicles, cabin or boat in the case of a major sting.
Careful while chilling & grilling!
Many people take for granted that their outdoor grill isn't a hug safety hazard. Cleaning out cobwebs & using a paper towel regularly to clean the grill in and out can prevent any unexpected combustion's to occur. Also keep an eye on those kids running around or near a grill during and after cooking. We don't want anything but the burgers cooked:)
Stay hydrated, stay aware & safety first!!!!
