Not Just Sunburns

Protect yourself and your children from a sunburn today and skin cancer in the future by spraying or slathering on the sunscreen. Reapply every two hours and whenever you sweat, towel off, or swim.

Sunburns are not the only type of burns risks to avoid this summer. Fire pits, barbecue grills, Tiki torches, and bug-repellant candles all pose a risk of burns from the open flames and hot surfaces. Never leave these or any hot objects unattended around children.

Most people do not associate burns with swimming pools, but every year people have to get emergency room treatment for chemical burns from pool chemicals. Keep the containers of chemicals well out of reach of children.

Keeping the Kids Safe at the Pool

Nobody wants to experience a child drowning accident. Whether your kids are splashing around in your backyard pool or at a hotel or public pool, follow these tips to prevent swimming pool accidents:

  • Take your child for swimming lessons. Until your child is a strong swimmer, make sure they wear a Coast Guard-approved life vest when near the water. Do not rely on pool toys or “water wings” to prevent drowning.
  • Make sure that a reliable person supervises your children when at the pool.
  • Do not be afraid to have and enforce safety rules for your children at the pool.
  • Be cautious of pool drains, as they can catch swimmers with strong suction, pulling them underwater.
