So many Canadians wait all year long for the summer and it’s no secret why! From longer days to warmer weather, to the amazing seasonal activities available, there’s no wonder why summer is so many Canadian’s favourite time of year! While enjoying your summer is very important, what’s more important is keeping yourself and your loved ones safe while you’re out having fun in the sun. For the best summer possible, keep in mind these simple summer safety tips!
Many people are on the road during the summer, whether it’s to go on a vacation or road trip, driving to the beach, or even just going on a long summer day drive through the city. While driving in the summer is a lot of fun, it’s important to realize that more car accidents happen in the summer than at any other time of the year. So, be mindful while driving this summer to uphold your safety. This means making sure your car is in good shape, being mindful of other drivers on the road, and driving at a safe speed.
Practice Fire Safety
Summer evenings are the perfect time for a campout, a barbecue, or a bonfire. It can be super fun to enjoy a good old-fashioned cookout! However, when you’re around the fire this summer, make sure you treat it as a safety concern because while it is fun, it can still cause a significant risk to your safety. Make sure you practice fire safety by keeping a good distance, keeping children and pets away, and not setting up your fire where there are trees or other flammable materials closeby.
Be Careful In The Water
Whether you’re in the pool, the lake, or the ocean, swimming and other aquatic activities are a great way to keep cool and have fun in the summer. Enjoy your time in the water this summer, but also make sure to uphold a sense of safety through good practices. Never swim without a buddy, keep a close eye on pets and children, and if you choose to participate in activities like boating, tubing, or other water fun, make sure you’re being mindful and careful every moment you’re in the water.
