Keep poison out of reach
During the warm weather, lots of chemicals and poisons find their way into your yard and garage. They can be very dangerous to small children and pets. Make sure everything is stored away from areas where it can be accidentally ingested or touched.
Secure the pool
Pools are a danger to not only your children but any neighborhood children. Safety gates and fencing help but if you can install a pool alarm that is even better. The alarm will go off if anything breaks the surface of the water. Hot tiles or pavement can also cause burns especially when it is very hot. Always try to make sure there is some shade available. If you have a wading pool, never leave it out with water in it, always empty it and turn it over.
Falls from the play equipment in your yard can result in sprains and breaks. Making sure that adequate padding breaks any falls can cut down on the number of summer injuries.
Grilling is part of the fabric of summer. Using a grill safely is important. Make sure it is far enough away from any structure that a flare-up doesn’t lead to a fire. Grills need to be cleaned regularly.
