Kids and Summer Safety
 

      With summer weather and the end of the school year comes the issues of summer safety for our children.  To help keep kids safe this summer please check out the links below for information and tips on water safety, playground safety and home safety.  Many kids stay home alone for at least part of the day during the summer vacation.  We have included a link for a parent's guide from the Alabama Cooperative Extension System for children who must be home alone.  Use these guides to help protect your children and teach them safety skills that will benefit them for years to come.

 

KEEP KIDS SAFE THIS SUMMER (cdc.gov)
This site includes tips on summer safety including Master Water Safety to prevent drowning and recreational water illnesses as well as many others.
