Summer Safety Tips

  • Drink plenty of water or Gatorade to remain well hydrated at all times while working or playing outside
  • Long exposure times to the heat can cause medical problems. Be aware of signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. If working outside, work in short increments and stay in the shade to avoid heat emergencies.
  • Protect your property. Keep grass and excessive weeds trimmed and remove combustible materials from the edges of your house. During summer, grass fires are a major threat!
  • Be aware of changing weather patterns, and keep an eye on the forecast. Be Prepared.
