  • Protect against those pesky bugs by applying and reapplying bug spray.

  • Check the UV Index for the day and apply sunscreen accordingly.

  • Be prepared for the weather! Check the forecast and plan for any possible changes in precipitation or heat waves.

  • Stay hydrated! Drink a lot of water, especially if you are spending time outside in the sun. P.S. Alcohol does not keep you hydrated. 😉

  • Always wear a Personal Flotation Device (PFD) when participating in water activities such as kayaking & canoeing.

  • Keep your fire small & manageable.

  • Have resources on available to extinguish a fire that gets out of hand - fire extinguisher, a water source, dirt/sand.

  • Teach children about fire safety. Stop, drop & roll! 🔥

  • Always put out your fire properly. Make Smokey Bear proud.

Grilling Safety

  • Never leave a lit or hot grill unattended, especially when children are present!

  • Keep a fire extinguisher on hand in case of a flare up gone wrong.

  • Don't use a grill under porches/overhangs or close to any structure. (Pro tip: the siding on your house can, and will, melt 🙃)

  • Be aware of and follow your state and local laws/ordinances.

  • Read the safety instruction on the fireworks you plan on enjoying.

  • Always use fireworks outside!

Take these simple steps to stay prepared & safe this summer!

Great article and tips, buddy! This information will be useful to many people. I like the text and its informativeness. But to be honest, I would slightly correct the visual part. I advise adding a few dangerous images to warn users of the possible danger. Indeed, according to statistics, high-quality visual content is more memorable and causes positive feedback.
