Texas air conditioning company provides safety tips for keeping summer fun.
GARLAND, Texas, August 2, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Summer is a fun time of the year. The kids are out of school. Families have a few months to reconnect and go on vacation together. Friends get to enjoy their favorite outdoor activities. However, during all that fun, the break in routine holds danger that sometimes people don’t think about. Every activity and change in routine invites a possibility of a catastrophe. Plus, kids and adults alike often share these dangers.
Fortunately, with a little foresight and precaution, a fun summer day will become no more than a good memory. So, with the interest of their fellow Texans in mind, A-US Air Conditioning reminds people of these summer safety tips.
Sunscreen helps protect people from sunburns, which can lead to skin cancer, if not protected. The Texas sun is hot, and it’s imperative that adults and children alike take care when enjoying a sunny day. Also, remember to reapply sunscreen and wear a hat when possible. Failing to reapply sunscreen every few hours can still lead to sunburn. If sunburn becomes too severe, sun poisoning can occur, which can lead to an emergency room visit. So, keep sunscreen handy and reapply frequently.
Regardless of where summer vacation leads, it’s important that people keep cool. Always carry water to drink and be conscious of how the heat is affecting everyone. Make sure to check on the elderly frequently and don’t allow children to stay out in the sun too long. If someone looks as though they may be dehydrated, get them water and cool them off. If needed, call emergency services. Heat stroke and dehydration can happen quickly and worsen to a dangerous degree within minutes. So, please watch out for yourselves, families, and neighbors.
Respect the Water
Water is a large part of summer entertainment for both kids and adults. Yet, it’s extremely important that everyone respects the power of the water. Unfortunately, accidents can happen anywhere. Often, nothing seems amiss until it’s too late. So, ensure that children know to ask before going near water and watch them vigilantly. When in a body of water, keep hydrated.
Have a First-Aid Kit Handy
Outdoor activities are common in the summer. With those activities, sometimes accidents happen more often. Thankfully, most injuries are minor. Although, it’s still important to get any wound sustained cleaned and bandaged properly. So, it’s a good idea to keep the First-Aid kit handy. Especially when traveling around with kids, keep the First-Aid kit in the car. That way, any minor issues can be dealt with easily and without too much drama.
Keep the Cellphone Charged
Cellphones are wonderful for helping ensure safety. Yet, they don’t do any good if they aren’t charged. So, another safety tip is always to make sure the cell phone is charged and on your person. There’s no telling when someone might need to get ahold of a family member, or even EMS services. Having a cell phone in an emergency could easily save a life.
To close, A-US Air Conditioning of Texas wants everyone to have a carefree, memorable summer, filled with good memories. Yet, as a family-owned company, they want to share these safety tips as a reminder. The company’s hope is that sharing these tips will help everyone have a safer summer.
