Summer Safety - Laureate Insurance Partners Summer Safety - Laureate Insurance Partners

Summer is almost here and with schools closing, that means more time for family vacations! We hope your summer is filled with fun and relaxing activities, and not with stress or injuries. Accidents happen and tend to peak as the temperatures rise but luckily, we have prepared some helpful tips to keep you and your family safe this summer.

Beat the heat

  • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
  • Apply a high SPF sunscreen and reapply often.
  • Avoid heavy alcohol and caffeine, if possible, on hotter days.
  • Keep curtains drawn to help decrease temperature inside.
  • Install weather strips under doors to help keep your home insulated.  
  • Keep pets inside or in shaded areas with plenty of water.

Water safety

  • Watch ocean warnings and be cautious of high tide.
  • Swim with a buddy, especially in the ocean.
  • Be sure to have enough life jackets for everyone on a boat and that they fit everyone properly. 
  • Enroll children in swimming lessons, if needed.

Home safety

  • Secure every door and window before leaving for vacation (especially older sliding glass doors).
  • Arrange to have a friend or neighbor get your mail and newspapers when traveling.
  • Avoid leaving a spare key outside – it’s an open invitation to burglars.
