We want to wish you and your family a wonderful and safe holiday weekend.  Happy 4th of July from our Family to Yours! 

Child Safety
Due to the large attendance at many Independence Day-related activities, it is crucial that Families focus on child safety and meet-up plans.
- Families should consider wearing unique, identifiable colors, hold hands at all times and/or buddy up.
-A unique way of ensuring you are contacted if your child is lost in a crowd is to have your child wear a beaded bracelet that has your phone number or consider getting an ID bracelet or something similar.
-Determine a time and place to meet should the Family separate.
-Make sure that you child knows to find a police officer if they get lost in a crowd.

Water Safety
Because almost everyone heads out to the lake or beach for 4th of July, it is important that you and your Family are kept as safe as possible while playing in the water or out in the water with your jet ski or boat. Here are some water safety tips for Independence Day:
- Make sure the children – and even adults – always have a life jacket on when in the water or on a motorized water vehicle (boat, jet ski, etc.)
- Never let your children swim alone. An adult should always be present and paying attention.
- Always step “Feet First”* into shallow water and never try to dive.
- Alcohol, fireworks and Fourth of July do not mix well. Drink responsibly and make sure to have a designated driver available.
- Review safe boating practices.
- Always have a phone handy should an emergency arise.
- Know your limits when it comes to water.
