The weather has been fabulous and the water is heating up making it more inviting for some swims! Do you and your family know and practice swim safety at home and at the beach? We recommend you review some suggestions below and add them to your swim safety repertoire:
- Fence in your pool or pond areas to avoid potential water accidents
- Tidy pool areas of toys as children can find them tempting and enter the water unattended
- To combat Mosquitos breeding around your home, clean out standing water weekly in such areas as fountains, bird feeders and planters
- Maintain a buddy system when swimming in the ocean or pool
- Children and individuals who cannot swim should wear life jackets or a flotation device
- Do not swim when intoxicated as anyone can drown in even an inch of water
- Avoid glassware around the pool or ocean where shards can break and cut bare feet
- Enforce no running around pools as people can slip on wet surfaces and get injured
- Keep your CPR certification up-to-date (Click here to see available CPS classes provided by the Red Cross)
- Take swim lessons (Click here to see available swim classes provided by the Red Cross in your areas)

As summer quickly approaches, now is the time to freshen up on some backyard safety tips. Whether you have a backyard, gated entrance or front porch, it is wise to make sure you and your family are secure and safe every season! Locking pet doors at night to thwart unwanted animals from your home is a wise move if you have younger children in the home and reside in areas with coyotes. Putting gates around pool or bodies of water is a must to prevent young children or pets from falling into the water while unattended.
Have you noticed new plant life in your garden? Make sure your yard is free of any poisonous plants that can be consumed or cause skin irritation. Before cleaning up or mowing lawns, ensure rocks and debris are free from the area to avoid unnecessary injuries. Springtime brings new life to yards and extends your outdoor time but make sure to safely store chemicals and fertilizer out of reach of children. Notice dips in concrete and warped wood floors outside? Take time to level these areas in the hope of preventing potential tripping or personal injury.
Check back here for more summer safety tips!

Today we honor our fallen soldiers who sacrificed everything to keep us safe. We thank those who have served and the family of the servicemen, women and K-9s who continue to protect our great nation. We also reflect back to the Patriots & Paws Golf Tournament that occurred earlier this month. It was an honor to be a part of such a great cause that supports our Veterans as they transition into civilian life and Active Duty/Reservists returning from deployment.
This charity golf tournament was a great success and we met a lot of great individuals through this event! Patriots & Paws is a wonderful organization that unites Veterans with trained rescued animals. These K-9s help give our heroes purpose and serve as an emotional support during what can be a difficult transition time. We look forward to being able to give back to this organization again next year. Be on the lookout for information on how you can give back and even participate in the 2019 Patriots & Paws Charity Golf Tournament.
