1 – Protect Yourself Against Sunburn

The sun can burn fair skin easily, even if it doesn’t feel that warm out. Be sure to use sunscreen on children and light-skinned adults. Cover all your exposed skin and use a high SPF that keeps you safe all day long. Waterproof sunscreen is great for beach and pool days.

2 – Keep an Eye on the Weather

Summer storms can develop quickly, and suddenly you can be caught in a hailstorm with high winds, rain, thunder, and lightning. Always check the weather before embarking on the day’s adventures and pack clothing to protect yourself against inclement conditions.

3 – Stay Hydrated

Be sure to stay hydrated throughout the day. Drink at least a cup of water every hour. Pack enough water for everyone when you go on daily trips. Don’t drink from natural water sources like lakes and ponds; they could be contaminated with bacteria or viruses.

4 – Wear Weather-Appropriate Clothing

Wear loose-fitting clothing that covers you when it’s hot out to protect against the elements and wildlife. Wear breathable fabrics, and don’t forget rugged shoes if you are going hiking. Proper footwear is essential for outdoor sports and safety.

5 – Watch Out for Insects and Use Bug Spray

Always pack some bug spray and learn about insect types and what to do if you are bitten. Some people are allergic to bees, and mosquitos often carry Malaria, ZIKA, Lyme disease, and other infectious diseases.

6 – Car Safety

Never leave children or pets in a hot car, even for a few minutes. Always wear your seatbelt, even on short trips. More accidents occur during the summer. Be extra careful driving and avoid distractions.

7 – Ventilate Your Home

Be sure your home is well ventilated and run fans or air conditioners to cool and dry your home during the hot months. If you don’t properly ventilate your home, you could suffer from the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning.

8 – Be Careful About Food

During the summer months, food-born illness is higher because warm temperatures can increase active bacteria growth. Therefore, keep food refrigerated or on ice when outside, and always check the shelf life of raw foods like vegetables and salad ingredients.

9 – Prevent Heatstroke

Heatstroke is a severe medical condition in which your body temperature rises quickly, and you may suffer confusion, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, muscle cramps, and headaches. Drink plenty of water, seek out shade, and avoid physical exertion in hot climates.

10 – Summer Activity Safety

To avoid personal injuries during summer activities, always wear safety gear like helmets, knee and elbow pads, and be extra careful around water (pools, ponds, lakes, and the ocean).
