  • Whether you’re working or playing outside in the summer, anybody not accustomed to the heat is at risk for a heat-related illness. Take steps to protect yourself:

​✓Wear appropriate clothing, including a wide-brimmed hat​

✓Take frequent water breaks​

✓Apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15-Don’t forget to reapply if sweating.

Never leave kids or pets unattended in a vehicle- In 10 minutes a vehicle temperature inside will increase on average 20*.  Two-thirds of the heating in the first 20 minutes

POol

 

  • More than one in five drowning victims are children 14-years-old and younger, and most incidents happen when a child falls into a pool or is left alone in the bathtub. Keep your kids safe in the water:

✓ Enroll children over the age of three in swimming lessons

✓ Don’t rely on lifeguards to watch over your children​

✓ Never leave your child unattended
