As the summer months continue, our Labor of Love nurse, Darlene offers these tips to keep children and families safe during summer play.
Helmet Safety: Whenever a child is “on wheels,” have them wear a properly fitted helmet. This includes scooters, skateboards, bikes and rollerblades.
Tick Safety/Bug Bites: Not all bug bites are benign! In areas of high insect population, wear protective clothing and bug repellent.
Pedestrian Safety: Walk in areas designated for pedestrians. Use crosswalks and cross with an adult or responsible older child.
