Summer Sfaety Tips for Kids

Now that summer is here, pool parties and backyard parties mean that barbeques will be firing up across the country. However, this also means that a trip to the ER could be in your future if you do not take safety precautions.

According to Underwriters Laboratories, half of all unintentional children's deaths happen in the summer months of June, July and August. During this time injuries to children increase, for a variety of reasons, making backyard safety a priority for every family with young children.  UL reports that an estimated 2.7 million children visit the emergency room each year due to injuries sustained in the pool and/or backyard.

Fires caused by BBQs amounted to nearly 7,900 annually between 2003 and 2007. Those families that have swimming pools need to increase their awareness, as 200,000 children under the age of 14 visit the ER each year; ten people die daily from drowning in the United States.
