Summer Safety Tips

The weather is hot across the country this summer, and that means you're probably looking to have some fun in the sun if you haven't already. But before you pack your RV and hit the road to your summer vacation destinations, be sure you're prepared for your warm-weather travels with these summer safety tips.

Pack Plenty of Sun Protection

It seems obvious to pack sunscreen for your summer vacation, but other items like sun shades, UV-protective clothing and sunglasses are more easily forgotten. Try to avoid being in direct sunlight between the hours of 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and if you'll be outside during those hours, be sure to reapply sunscreen after sweating, swimming and every couple of hours.

Avoid Heat Illness

The hot summer temperatures in across the country can catch you buy surprise. Make sure you're accustomed to the high temperatures before you start spending any time outside, and always keep plenty of liquids on hand when you do. And of course, never leave a passenger or pet in a parked vehicle for any amount of time.

Swim Safely

Whether you're choosing to swim in the ocean, lake, river or swimming pool, the danger of drowning is always there. Make sure you're always swimming with a partner and keeping a constant eye on your kids while they swim. Choose to swim at beaches and pools with lifeguards on duty whenever possible.

Keep Bugs at Bay

Pesky bugs are one of the downsides of summer time, but itchy, annoying and dangerous bites and stings can easily be prevented. Always use bug sprays including up to 30-percent DEET on kids and adults older than 2 months to prevent against disease-carrying insects. Avoid wearing (or dressing your kids in) brightly-colored clothing or scented perfumes, which can attract bees and other pesky bugs.
