Use These Tips for a Stress-Free Holiday Weekend

Stress-free holiday weekend

Memorial Day is one of the most important holidays in the United States, offering the opportunity to slow down and practice gratitude for the men and women who have gave the greatest sacrifice so we can enjoy our freedom.  To honor them, many of us use the long weekend to gather friends and family together.  Here are some tips to keep your celebrations safe:

  • Over The Barbecue:Keep a fire extinguisher on hand. Make sure that one person is always tending to the barbecue when it’s hot (your own “fire Marshall”). To avoid food poisoning, make sure food is kept cold until it goes on the grill. Once there, it should be heated to at least 165 degrees to kill bacteria.
  • In The Pool:Before you welcome people into your pool, it’s important that you double-check that your water is clean and balanced. Then, make sure there is always an adult supervising any children swimming in the pool.  Keep lifesaving devices such as floatation devices, a phone and reaching poles poolside.
  • Behind The Wheel:The holiday weekend means increased traffic. Stay safe by giving people plenty of following space, breaking up long car trips with frequent rest periods, always turning on your headlights at dusk and in poor weather, and stowing your cell phone to avoid distractions.

We hope you find a meaningful way to celebrate this Memorial Day weekend. We want to send our sincere thanks to the family members of all of the men and women who have lost their lives serving our country.
