Summer Safety

Written by 

May 22, 2013 – …aah, here we are again! Summer is just beyond the next corner! Freedom from bulky coats, wet boots, icicles in our nostrils, shovelling snow and de-icing car locks. I want to feel the warmth of the sun on my shoulders, and soft, beach sand beneath my feet but mostly I want to see the smiles on my children's faces as they frolic about freely during the warm summer months. As parents, the rule of thumb is that the more prepared we are, the more we can enjoy our summer.

Children's Health and Safety Association has many articles for Summer Safety and they are all accessible on the front page of our website www.safekid.org or you can click on any of the underlined headings below to view the documents! Either way we have you covered!
