It’s hard to believe that Independence Day is already here. This uniquely American holiday is always an exciting time, full of energy and fun activities such as travelling, swimming, boating, fireworks, the beach, picnics and barbecues with family and friends.
The Fourth of July should be happy time full of lasting memories. Please keep an eye toward safety as you go about enjoying this holiday. Whatever your activity of choice, take a moment to think about what could go wrong and take steps to eliminate or at least minimize those hazards. We already know the weather is going to be extremely hot - take the proper precautions and watch out for signs of heat-related illness in yourself and others.
Good health and being safe are full-time jobs and require thought and planning. Please take some time to think about health and safety this holiday; you’ll be glad you did, and the memories you create will be the good kind.
