I wish for all of our readers a fun and interesting summer. A chance to play on a beach with our grandchildren, check out one of the many summer novels, and enjoy walks in the nice weather are hallmarks of this beautiful season. Let’s make sure to keep it fun by adhering to some tips on safety. There is nothing worse than a trip to the emergency room to zap the joy out of our fun! Here are some things to keep in mind:


  • Avoid peak periods of sun when the heat index is extreme.
  • Use sunscreen when you are out and about, even for a short time.
  • Find some shady areas to sit at which can still allow you to join in the fun. A beach umbrella has prevented many a sunburn.
  • Hydrate well by drinking lots of water.
  • Make sure you stock up with groceries and water in case of a power outage.
  • If you have an extended power outage don’t try to be a hero. Stay with friends or relatives or go to a cooling center until the power is back on. Local officials/government can guide you as to where to go.
  • Make sure to notify emergency contacts as to your safety. Our loved ones worry about us if they cannot reach us. Make sure their numbers are up to date with Village personnel so they can be reached.
  • Regarding water safety, keep your eyes on anyone in the water at all times. Use life preservers. A tragic accident can happen in an instant.
  • Food safety is also key. Do not let food sit out in hot temperatures. Have a way to keep things cool.
