Laps and pools can be a summer paradise; Make sure your family and guests are safe.
Summer. Time to relax and enjoy the fun in your own backyard. But to keep the fun rolling, make sure everyone stays safe and healthy.
POOLS AND SPA
If you have a pool in the backyard, take steps to reduce the likelihood of an accidental drowning. Every year, nearly 300 children under the age of 5 drown in pools in the United States, making it the most common cause of death for children in that age range.
Tragically, 87% of these deaths occur in backyard pools. Rule No. 1 is to never leave a child unattended or unattended in a pool.
Swimming is the fifth most popular recreational activity in the United States, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. All home pools, commercial pools, hot tubs and spas used mean that many chemicals are used to keep the water safe for swimmers. But pool chemicals require careful handling.
With more people entertaining at home after a year or more of isolation, it’s time to light the grill. Unfortunately, every summer season also causes many home fires and burns in connection with outdoor activities. In 2018, approximately 16,600 patients went to emergency rooms due to injuries with coal or gas grills. Keep your family and friends safe with some safety tips.
One of your annual garden tasks may involve applying a new layer of mulch to control weed growth, reduce soil erosion and add nutrients to the soil. While your fruits, vegetables or ornamental plants can be useful, mulch is a combustible material. Once it has burned, mulch can be difficult to extinguish.
Keeping your lawn green and lush can be a pride and a way to expand your living space to your yard. However, lawns need to be mowed and serious damage can occur if you are not careful when mowing. Those with larger lawns can rely on riding lawn mowers to get the job done. But beware of driving them on slopes.
