Family Safety During the Fourth of July Holiday

Of course, safety is at the forefront of a successful holiday celebration, so celebrants should take precautions to maintain their personal safety and that of their children.  For instance, everyone should have a hat and plenty of sunscreen to ward off the harmful rays of the sun while playing outdoors.

If boating, there should be ample life jackets on board.  Keep alcoholic beverages on shore and remember that the waterways can be more populated during the holidays.  For everyone’s safety, boaters should exercise courtesy and respect toward other water vehicles at all times.

Closed-toed shoes are best to wear in any area where fireworks will be displayed, and parents should keep a close eye on children at all times.   If barbecuing, a fire extinguisher should be on hand, and long utensils utilized to avoid burns,
