Nancy Trench from Fire Protection Publications talks about the importance of firework, water and storm safety.
With the days getting longer and the temperatures rising, summer activities are in full swing. While this can be exciting, it's important to take the necessary steps toward safe summer fun.
In this segment of #AsktheExperts, viewers will learn about various resources available to them and how to be responsible in a variety of outdoor circumstances such as bad weather, water dangers and firework engagement.
Here are few takeaways from this segment:
Children should never be allowed to play with fireworks (including sparklers) unsupervised or without the help of an adult.
Double check the sizing of life jackets on all parties before they enter the water. (If the life jacket can be pulled up past the individuals chin, the life jacket is too big.)
Monitor weather carefully during the summer. DO NOT enter the water within 30 minutes of lightning striking within a ten mile radius of your location.
