[ARCHIVED] Memorial Day Safety Tips

Memorial Day Weekend Safety Tips Chart

Your Memorial Day barbecue is the unofficial start of the summer season. Make the most of this warm-weather celebration with a few Memorial Day safety tips from the safety teams at Jonesboro E911.

General Water Safety:

Children should always be supervised: Whether you're in the backyard, a public pool, or at the beach, make sure there is a responsible, designated person to watch the water when children are swimming. Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury death for children ages 1-14 years.

Test the water temperature before you get in: Jumping into cold water can shock your body and elevate your heart rate and blood pressure, and also slow your muscles, making it difficult to swim. In case of an Emergency, please dial 911.
