Summer Safety Tips


Summer is all about being outside, but make sure that the heat doesn’t ruin all of the the fun for you and your family. 

  • Drink plenty of water (The recommendation is that you drink half of your body weight in ounces of water daily.)
  • Apply plenty of sunscreen and reapply often 
  • 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


Keep your trips to the beach and pool days safe this summer by practicing these simple rules below: 

  • 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


When traveling on vacation this summer, you’ll want to make sure your home is protected. 

  • Secure every door and window (especially older sliding glass doors)
  • Arrange to have a friend or neighbor get your mail and newspapers
  • Avoid leaving a spare key outside – it’s an open invitation to burglars 
  • Place a security sign in your yard (whether you have a security system of not)
