How to Fireproof Your Fourth of July Weekend

Summer is here, ushering in a slew of outdoor activities like barbecues, camping, and fireworks. Of course, what Independence Day would feel complete without the bright and fiery sparkle of fireworks dancing in the sky? Unfortunately, every year, at least 10,000 individuals get hurt or burned from fireworks, half of which are often children under the age of 14. To prevent this from happening to you or your children, take some important precautions to keep your summer celebrations safe and free from fire-related accidents.

Ways to Accident Proof Your Pool Area

If your home has a pool, it is probably your family's greatest form of respite from the summer heat. With the kids at home for the summer, however, it might be hard to always keep track of their whereabouts in the home, and you cannot always keep your eyes on the pool. To prevent accidents from happening, you can take some safety precautions to accident proof your pool and ensure your children do not get into any dangerous mischief that might cause them harm.

Risk of Child Brain Injuries Due to Defective Playground Equipment

Children love to play and will inevitably jump at the opportunity to swing, slide, or climb when they see a playground inviting them to do exactly that. Unfortunately, playgrounds are not always safe and equipment is sometimes defective, or inadequately maintained, presenting numerous hazards to unsuspecting children. Every year, more than 200,000 children are treated in emergency rooms for playground-related injuries, and over 20,000 of them receive a traumatic brain injury (TBI) diagnosis. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), emergency department visits for playground-related TBIs increased significantly since 2005, making these injuries less of an anomaly and more of an alarming trend all parents should be aware of.
