Have a Safe Memorial Day

Memorial Day signals the start of summertime activities. It is the time for travel, cook-outs, amusement parks, camping and an assortment of other outdoor activities. It is also a good time to review some tips to keep your family safe during these activities.

  • When grilling out, use long-handled utensils. Never use a grill in an enclosed area. Clean your grill and utenils after each use.
  • When out in the sun use sunscreen and wear a hat. Wear shoes that are appropriate for the activity you are involved in. Keep an eye out for poison ivy and carry insect repellant.
  • Remember, traffic will be heavier during the holiday weekend. Give yourself plenty of time and use your seat belts. Neve drink and drive.
  • Make sure your vehicle is road-worthy. Check tires and pressure. Make sure your windshield wipers are in good condition and that you have washer fluid.
  • When boating, have flotation devices for all passengers.
