Tuesday, August 26, 2014

With Labor Day weekend comes one of the final times to get together with family and friends before the end of summer. If we’re lucky, the weekend will be filled with good food, good times and lots of laughter and fun. At the same time, it’s important to keep safety at the forefront, regardless of how you spend your Labor Day weekend. Labor Day Safety Tips to Ensure a Fun Time!

If outdoors or grilling:

-Keep your grill away from the house, dry leaves, trees, and anything that could cause a fire.

-Have plenty of sunscreen and bug spray on hand to avoid sunburn, heat rash, or unwanted bug bites and stings.

If driving:

-Be safe while driving, and have a designated driver if you’re going to drink alcohol.

-Be on high alert to watch out for the other drivers on the roadways.

If having fun in the water (lake, beach, river):

-Check out water conditions before taking a dip.

-Make sure those who aren’t great swimmers wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved life jacket.

-Only swim in designated areas.

-Always supervise children in the water.

-See sunscreen tip above.

In general:

-Have an emergency kit handy.

-Always have plenty of water on hand.

Money matters:

-When out and about, keep your money and personal belongings safe and secure.

-Consider only carrying one debit or credit card vs. cash if you know you’ll be adventuring outdoors, and know the customer service number on the back of your debit or credit cards in the unfortunate event  of a lost or stolen card.

The goal is to be aware of your surroundings while having fun Labor Day weekend. Hopefully, these tips will help. You can get more tips on the Red Cross and Super Pages websites.

BONUS TIP: Look out for all those Labor Day sales to save money on final back-to-school items for the kids or to update your own fall wardrobe!
