Hot topic: Summer safety
Summer is a time for family road trips, outdoor fun in the sun and hopefully lots of great weather.
Here are some simple reminders to prepare for safe summer days:
Stay cool in the heat: Keep cool and hydrated and minimize your time in the sun between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Drink plenty of water, find shade, visit cool buildings, slow down, bathe in cool water and wear light-coloured clothing. Never leave children or pets inside a parked vehicle. When the outside air temperature is 23°C/73°F, the temperature inside a vehicle can be extremely dangerous – more than 50°C/122°F. More tips here:
