Have Fun in the Sun…Safely!

The warm weather is here and it’s a great time for enjoying family and friends. But it can also be dangerous if you don’t take the proper precautions. Here are some great tips for staying safe in the heat this summer:

Drink Plenty of Water!
Stay hydrated. The easiest way to stay cool is also often the most overlooked.

Protect Your Skin!
Always use sunscreen when outside even if it is only for short periods of time.

Don’t Over Do It!
Limit strenuous exercise and activity. Plan to exercise during the early morning or late evening when the temperatures are lower.

Break Time!
When working outdoors don’t overextend yourself. Periodic breaks will help you recover.

Pay Attention!
Check on family and friends. The heat is especially difficult on young children and the elderly.
