Each week throughout the month is an opportunity to make a difference in your home, work, and community. Identifying risks and making improvements, no matter how small helps everyone. Water safety tips and drills are timely with weather warming up. The allure of water in a swimming pool, pond, or even a garden hose can present a life-threatening danger. Hold drills at home to help children know what to do in the even of a fire, medical event, or a natural disaster. Put together a first aid kit with your child and show them how to use each item. Take a CPR class. Learn the proper storage and disposal of medications. Visit the National Safety Council for tips and resources.
