Summer Fun: Three Safety Tips

In Florida, all-season good weather attracts tourists and creates a beautiful climate to call home. This season, keep the following points in mind whether you’re traveling or just staying home to enjoy the sun and fun:

  1. Soak up the rays — cautiously: Ultraviolet rays from the sun cause premature aging of the skin. Wear the proper sunscreen, apply it liberally and wear a shirt and hat to reduce your chance of skin cancer from sun exposure. Be careful with infants and young children who have thinner, more easily burned skin. Do not forget your eyes — solar rays cause premature aging of the retina and contribute to cataracts and macular degeneration.
  2. Burns: The summer and autumn seasons provide ample opportunity for camping, grilling and danger from thermal and chemical burns. When camping, build your fire on the downward side of your tent. Be sure your tent is composed of fire-retardant material. Be cautious about carrying combustible material like propane or gasoline in your trunk — be sure to vent storage areas from time to time.
  3. Weather: Frequent afternoon thunderstorms cause approximately 40 injuries and ten deaths each year in Florida. When you hear thunder or see lightning, seek shelter and stay there. Wait 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder before going back outdoors.

If you do suffer a serious injury in Florida, be sure to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney in Manatee County.
