Are your summer days lazy or full of activity? No matter how you choose to spend your time, you’ll want to keep it safe. The primary care physicians at Riverview Medical Center want to share four summer safety tips that will help you enjoy the season.

  1. Be safe around water: Summer is prime time for swimming and boating. But whether you’re at the pool in your backyard or the beach, you need to be on high alert. It only takes a minute for disaster to strike. Even if lifeguards are on duty, make sure you keep an eye on everyone in your group.
  2. Be safe while traveling: More people are on the roads for summer vacations, meaning there are more opportunities for accidents to happen. Keep your eyes on the road, put your mobile devices away, and obey all traffic laws.
  3. Be safe while entertaining: If you enjoy hosting family and friends this time of year, you’re not alone. But keep it safe by watching out for hazards that could cause slips or falls around your property. If you’re serving alcohol, you’re responsible for your guests’ safety. Don’t overserve and don’t let people drink and drive.
  4. Be safe at home: Summer break means your kids are probably around the house more than normal. Make sure all medications and any other dangerous items are safely out of reach.
