Visits to emergency rooms spike during the summer. To protect your community, share these safety tips.

A leading cause of death in children under age 5 is drowning. However, kids aren’t the only ones who can suffer summer-related accidents and illnesses.

  • Burns from campfires and barbecue grills.

  • Head injuries that result from not wearing proper helmets during water sports and bike riding.
