Summer Safety Tips from Rural/Metro Fire Department

Pool Safety 

While around the pool assign someone to be a water watcher. The water watcher will pay close attention to the pool and not be distracted by other activities. Have a phone nearby the pool to dial 911 in case of an emergency. Allow children a break during swimming activities, they can become tired and then be in danger while in the pool. There is no excuse for not watching children around the pool. Don’t think that someone else is watching them, make sure you watch the water.

Practice the ABC’s of Water Safety

• Adult Supervision- Never let a child swim alone or be near water unattended
• Barriers- Fences around pools should have self-closing, self-locking gates that will keep a child from accessing the pool without supervision. 
• Classes- Swim Classes for anyone who does not know how to swim and CPR classes for every adult. 

Hiking Safety

Be prepared, take plenty of water, and wear sunscreen and light colored clothing. Carry a backpack where you can have a small first aid kit, a flashlight and a map of the area you are hiking. Don’t hike alone; let someone know your planned route and when you should be home. Be attentive to the wildlife and remember the animals that can hurt you are 

Barbeque Safety

Start with a very clean barbeque and a safe area to cook in. Move the barbeque away from your home and the overhanging roof. If using propane, insure that the connection to the bottle is tight and there are no leaks in the rubber hoses. Make sure the barbeque has cooled off before storing. Storing of chemicals should be away from any heat the cooking area may produce.
