10 Summer Safety Tips

  1. Stay home if you’re sick
    Wash your hands often, and wear a mask to protect others in high-risk situations.
  2. Protect your head!
    Helmets can save your life in the event of an accident. Wear a properly fitted helmet when riding a bike, ATV, or skateboard.
  3. Kids don’t float
    Wear properly fitted life jackets when recreating on or near the water. Many park sites have personal flotation devices (PFDs) available for loan!
  4. Buckle up
    Buckle children into properly installed and fitted car seats.
  5. Be seen
    Wear reflective clothing near roads.
  6. Share your plans
    Make sure someone knows your plans and when you expect to return.
  7. Be prepared
    Travel with appropriate water, clothing, and equipment.
  8. Don’t overdo it!
    Limit your activities to what can be done safely. If things are starting to hurt, it’s a good sign to take a break or turn back.
  9. Bear (and Moose!) aware
    Stay alert, and respect the space of wildlife.
  10. Know your harvest
    Some poisonous plants and fungi can look like safe, harvestable types. If you don’t know for sure, let it stay, or ask someone to check!
