Never stop in the middle of the road, pull into the center lane or into oncoming traffic. 

Whenever you see an approaching emergency vehicle, remember:

PULL TO THE RIGHT FOR SIRENS AND LIGHTS.

Safety Tips

~~Summer is a great time for kids to enjoy different indoor and outdoor activities. Whether they are young children or teens, learn ways to keep your kids safe and healthy while they enjoy the summer fun.
Master water safety

Water-related activities are popular for getting physical activity and have many health benefits. Here are some tips to stay safe while having fun.
•Learn how to prevent recreational water illnesses and help protect yourself and your kids.
•Help kids get H2O Smartz about water safety.

Drownings are the leading cause of injury death for young children ages 1 to 4, and three children die every day as a result of drowning.
•Always supervise children when in or around water. A responsible adult should constantly watch young children.
•Teach kids to swim. Formal swimming lessons can protect young children from drowning.
•Learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Your CPR skills could save someone’s life.
•Install a four-sided fence around home pools.

Recreational boating can be a wonderful way to spend time with family and friends. Make boating safety a priority.
•Wear a properly fitted life jacket every time you and your loved ones are on the water.

Beat the heat and sun

Heat-related illness happens when the body’s temperature control system is overloaded. Infants and children up to 4 years of age are at greatest risk. Even young and healthy people can get sick from the heat if they participate in strenuous physical activities during hot weather. For heat-related illness, the best defense is prevention.
•Never leave infants, children, or pets in a parked car, even if the windows are cracked open.
•Dress infants and children in loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
•Schedule outdoor activities carefully, for morning and evening hours.
•Stay cool with cool showers or baths.
•Seek medical care immediate if your child has symptoms of heat-related illness.

Just a few serious sunburns can increase you and your child's risk of skin cancer later in life. Their skin needs protection from the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays whenever they're outdoors.
•Cover up. Clothing that covers your and your child's skin helps protect against UV rays.
•Use sunscreen with at least SPF (sun protection factor) 15 and UVA (ultraviolet A) and UVB (ultraviolet B) protection every time you and your child go outside.

Each year in the United States, emergency departments treat more than 200,000 children ages 14 and younger for playground-related injuries. Falls at home and on the playground are a common cause of injury.
•Check to make sure that the surfaces under playground equipment are safe, soft, and well-maintained.
•Supervise young children at all times around fall hazards, such as stairs and playground equipment.
•Use stair gates, which can help keep a busy, active child from taking a dangerous tumble.

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can occur in any sport or recreation activity.
