Layton Outdoor Summer Safety

But before you head to the backyard, beach, or campground this summer, it’s important to know a few applicable safety tips. By taking a few simple precautions, you can help ensure that your summer stays fun and relaxing for both you and your loved ones.

A safe backyard is one that is designed for summertime fun. Before you hold that barbeque or party, however, there are a few things that you should do to get your backyard ready. For instance, check the lawn and surrounding areas carefully for holes, exposed tree roots, and other potential hazards. Those things can harm you, like a twisted ankle or skinned knee. Fill any holes you find, and cover or remove roots or other potential danger.

If you’d like to grill outside, there are a few things you should do before you light those burners. If you use a gas grill, check for broken or cracked hoses or leaks. Be sure to set up your grill well away from the house, patio furniture, or branches. Never walk away from a grill while it’s on, and be sure to let it cool down completely before attempting to remove ashes.

If the beach is your favorite summer venue, it is advisable to follow some precautionary measures. For instance, pay attention to weather reports and warning flags. Even if it seems clear, there could be potential hazards from lightning strikes or rough waves that might seem to come out of nowhere. Also, never swim alone, and do not allow children or pets to play in the water unsupervised. It only takes a moment for someone to fall, slip under the water, and even lose consciousness or drown.

If camping is more your idea of summer fun, there are important things to know before leaving your house. Same as swimming, you should never hike or camp alone. If you don’t know first aid or it has been a while, take a refresher course, and re-stock your first aid kit. Make sure that you drink plenty of water and wear sunscreen, hat, and insect repellant. Be careful with the bug spray; however, some pesticides can cause skin irritation or otherwise harm your health. At long last, stay on clearly marked trails or carry both a map and a compass with you at all times, and follow all recommendations for right fire safety.

By following these simple safety tips, you can better focus on having fun and enjoying your best summer activity. After all, a little preparation goes a long way!
