Summer Safety Rules

From the National Weather Service – some summer safety rules to remind us to play safely.

My favorite is the last one. 😉

AS THE SUMMER ROLLS ALONG IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP HOT WEATHER
SAFETY RULES IN MIND.

NEVER...EVER...EVER LEAVE A PERSON OR ANIMAL IN A CLOSED CAR FOR
EVEN A FEW MINUTES. TEMPERATURES INSIDE A VEHICLE ON A SUMMER DAY
CAN HEAT QUICKLY TO DEADLY LEVELS.

CHECK ON ELDERLY FRIENDS AND RELATIVES TO BE SURE THEY ARE COPING
WELL WITH THE HEAT.

IF YOU CANNOT AFFORD AN AIR CONDITIONER....GO TO A LIBRARY...STORE...
OR OTHER LOCATION WITH AIR CONDITIONING FOR PART OF THE DAY.

IF YOU HAVE TO BE OUTDOORS DURING THE HOTTEST PART OF THE
DAY...TAKE FREQUENT BREAKS...AND DRINK PLENTY OF NON ALCOHOLIC AND
DECAFFEINATED FLUIDS. IF POSSIBLE...RESCHEDULE ACTIVITIES TO A
COOLER PART OF THE DAY.

WEAR LIGHTWEIGHT...LIGHT COLORED...CLOTHING TO REFLECT HEAT AND
SUNLIGHT.

LISTEN TO YOUR BODY...AND BE AWARE OF THE WARNING SIGNS FOR HEAT
CRAMPS...HEAT EXHAUSTION AND HEAT STROKE.

AND LASTLY...TAKE IT EASY...BETTER TO SUBSTITUTE A LAWN CHAIR IN THE
SHADE IN PLACE OF THAT LAWN MOWER IN THE SUN.
