It is summer again, and there are so many fun outdoor and indoor activities to engage in. However, there are also many dangers to protect your family from while having a good time.
Here are some tips to keep your family safe while enjoying yourselves this summer.
Protect Everyone From The Summer Heat and Harmful Sun Rays
Heat-related conditions like heat strokes and sunburns are the most common summer illnesses. Children aged four years and below are at the greatest risk. The first line of defense for your family is prevention.
Use sunscreen with SPF of at least 15, UVA and UVB protection every time you and your children are out in the sun. Dress in lightweight clothes and a wide brimmed hat. Never leave pets or children alone in parked cars even with the windows cracked open.
Learn Water Safety
Spending the day at a water park Albuquerque, NM such as Cliff’s Amusement Park will be your best choice this summer. With an extensive range of swimming pools, water slides, and water rides for all ages, this will be a day well spent.
However, you should never leave your kids unsupervised in or near the water. Ensure your children have water jackets at all times when they are on boats, water slides and other large water bodies. Have your kids take formal swimming lessons and teach them water safety tips.
Keep Mosquitoes, Ticks, and Bugs Away
Protect your family from insect bites this summer. Harmful insect bites can transmit malaria, Lyme disease, and many diseases. Use an insect repellent with DEET for family members above two years when outdoors.
Check your bodies and pets for ticks before coming into the house. You can remove ticks by using tweezers.
Make sure the surfaces and equipment in playgrounds are safe to prevent injuries. Your kids should have the right protective wear for any sports activity they engage in. With these tips, your family is sure to enjoy this summer vacation while being safe.
