SUMMER SAFETY FOR CHILDREN


Beat the heat and sun

Heat-related illness occurs when the body  temperature control system is overloaded. Those at greatest risk for heat-related illness include infants and children up to 4 years of age. Even young and healthy people can get sick from the heat if they participate in strenuous physical activities during hot weather. The best defense is prevention.

Never leave infants, children, or pets in a parked car, even if the windows are cracked open.

Dress infants and children in loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.

Schedule outdoor activities carefully, for morning and evening hours.

Stay cool with cool showers or baths.

Seek medical care immediate if your child has symptoms of heat-related illness.

Just a few serious sunburns can increase you and your child's risk of skin cancer later in life. Their skin needs protection from the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays whenever they're outdoors.

Cover up. Clothing that covers your and your child's skin helps protect against UV rays.

Use sunscreen with at least SPF (sun protection factor) 15 and UVA (ultraviolet A) and UVB (ultraviolet B) protection every time you and your child go outside.
