Memorial Day is the unofficial kickoff of a summer filled with pool time and barbecues. Have a safe and fun holiday weekend with these tips:
- Grill: Both children and pets are attracted to the smell and sight of food cooking. Keep them at least three feet away from the grill while it is lit or hot.
- Food: Make sure foods like onions, grapes, raisins and chocolate desserts are kept out of your pets’ reach. These are all toxic, and can even be fatal, for animals.
- Water safety: Children can drown in as little as one inch of water, so make sure someone supervises them at all times around any source of water.
- Sun exposure: Children six months or younger should be kept out of direct sunlight. Everyone else should liberally apply sunscreen and limit exposure during the peak hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
