Safety Tips For Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day is a time to honor and remember those who have died while serving in the U.S. military. It is also a time for family gatherings, barbecues, and outdoor activities. Here are some safety tips to keep in mind during Memorial Day weekend:

1. Stay hydrated and drink responsibly: While you’re enjoying outdoor activities and the warm weather, it’s easy to be hit by dehydration—and most people don’t see it coming. Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol if you’re going to be driving or operating machinery.

2. Be safe in the sun: Wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating. Wear a hat and sunglasses to protect your face and eyes from harmful UV rays.

3. Avoid burns from fires and grills: Keep a fire extinguisher nearby when grilling, and never leave a grill unattended. Keep children and pets away from grills and campfires.

4. Travel safely: If you’re traveling by car, make sure your vehicle is in good condition before hitting the road. Wear your seatbelt at all times, and never drink and drive.

I hope these tips help you stay safe during Memorial Day weekend!🇺🇸
