Many look forward to Memorial Day for a day off of work and family barbecues; However, it is important to take a moment to remember why we get the free day and commemorate the fallen men and women of the United States Armed Forces.
Before heading out to a Memorial Day BBQ, consider volunteering at a local cemetery and placing American flags on the graves of soldiers or attending one of their early morning Memorial Day events. During your Memorial Day celebrations, be sure to practice safe habits to ensure safe fun.
- Always practice safe grilling habits. Refrain from drinking alcoholic beverages while grilling and following the appropriate safety precautions including safe food handling.
- Lather up with sunscreen containing at least an SPF of 15 and don’t forget to hydrate!
- Don’t drink and drive or get in a car with someone who has been drinking.
- If you will be spending your day on the lake, be sure to practice safe boating precautions and always wear a life vest.
