Safety Tip: June
Plan Your Trip All the Way Through
In the joy and excitement of preparing for summer travel, keep the following preventive practices in mind!
1. Journey forward with water in hand and be on the lookout for more. Example: Take a reusable water bottle and fill up at every opportunity. Most airports now have bottle filling stations!
2. Nix the heavy load of luggage. The body is already under stress with the heat and possible increased humidity. A heavy load of luggage creates even more strain.
3. Be ready to prevent sunburn with skin protection sunscreen of at least 15 SPF. Apply at least 15 minutes before going outside. Continue to reapply according to package directions.
4. Throughout your travel, be aware of first aid stations and medical facility locations as well as community emergency contact information.
