Bike Safety

School is out and your child wants to be outside riding their bike. Before you let your little one head out make they will be safe. The brakes should work properly and the tires need to be inflated. Adjust the bike to fit. Wear a helmet that fits properly. Practice these rules with your child, look before turing, do not go in and out of cars, ride in the same direction as traffic, watch for vehicles coming in and out of driveways, and stop at all corners.

Water Safety

Summer fun in the sun. We love to go swimmimg when school is out. Here are afew water tips while having fun. Keep toys that are not in use away from the pool, they may attract children. Use safety covers when pools are not in use. Encourage your child to never swim alond, always bring a friend. Swim in an area that is supervised by lifeguards. Inexperienced swimmers need to weat an approved life jacket. Parents do not drink alcohol while watching your swimmer. When swimming in the ocean, watch out for rip currents. All people, no matter your skin tone should wear sunscreen SPF 15.
