1. Apply sunscreen with SPF 15 or greater to reduce the intensity of UV rays that cause sunburns. Apply it 15-30 minutes before sun exposure and then every 2-3 hours.
  2. Drink plenty of water and fluids when you go outside to avoid dehydration and keep them refueled
  3. Limit sun exposure, especially between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. UV rays are strongest at these times, especially in summer.
  4. Taking time to ensure outdoor play areas around your home are safe protects children from injuries in their own backyard.
  5. When you’re out on the trail, whether hiking, camping, or hunting, protect yourself from mosquitoes and other bugs by using insect and tick repellent.
  6. Drowning is among the leading cause of accidental death in children. Enroll your kid in a swimming survival program and always supervise them.
  7. Nothing protects your child better than your presence. One of the surest ways to protect your children outdoors is to provide adult supervision by keeping an eye on your children. You can step inĀ before injuries occur or respond quickly if problems arise.
