We wish everyone a wonderful 4th of July holiday!
Here are a few tips to keep your Independence Day celebration a happy, healthy, and safe one:
• Use alcohol responsibly — don’t drink and drive cars or boats
• Keep an anaphylaxis kit on hand for family and friends that may be allergic to insect stings
• Remember to use ample sunscreen and reapply after being in the water
• Make sure prescription medications won’t cause dangerous sun-sensitive reactions before going out
• Drink plenty of fluids and spend time in the shade or indoors to avoid heat illness
• Make sure to practice adequate hand washing to help prevent food poisoning
Happy 4th of July from Civista!
