It’s Farmer’s Market season!May 31, 2023
Here are some tips to keep in mind
Drink in moderation—no more than one alcoholic drink per hour.
Don’t drink alone. No one will be there to call 911 or take you to the emergency room if you experience alcohol poisoning, or if you get hurt and need immediate medical attention.
Don’t drive a car or operate heavy machinery, no matter how much alcohol you’ve had. This includes not riding on ATVs, working on a car or using lawn equipment, all examples of activities that have resulted in injuries requiring more intense emergency care.
Don’t drink when caring for small children.
Never leave a child unattended around a pool.
Be careful when you’re grilling and drinking, and never leave a grill unattended if it’s uncovered. Both increase the chances of burns, as an unattended, uncovered grill may result in a fire.
When setting a bonfire or other type of outdoor fire, be mindful that the wind can suddenly change direction. If you’re not careful and are too close to the fire, you or others close by may get burned.
If a fire does get out of control and you don’t have a fire extinguisher to put it out, call 911 right away. Don’t try to put the fire out yourself.
Smoking is bad for your health, but if you are a smoker, don’t smoke if you or someone around you is on oxygen therapy. This can result in severe burns to the face and body.
