Happy July Everyone!
We are officially half way through the year, and are now preparing to celebrate the most significant day in American history: Independence Day. Cookouts, sunshine, and fireworks are in store for the next few days, and it's sure to be a fantastic time for all.
Whether you're on vacation, traveling, or relaxing by your pool at home, we here at Mountainside Medical want to remind you to be safe this holiday week, and offer you some tips on how to avoid any incidents that may become potentially dangerous or hazardous, or what to do in the event of an accident or emergency.
A First Aid Kit is something that you should always keep with you in case of an emergency. Be prepared for any minor accident whether you're at home, or on the go. We offer several terrific kits for you, your family, and your furry companion - such as our MediBag Family First Aid Kit, which contains 117 items, and our Pet First Aid Kit, which contains 42 items.
However, if you prefer to make your own, some of the must have items to keep in your kit include:
Having all of these on hand is an extremely efficient way of taming an unwanted crisis. More accidents tend to happen around this holiday, and summertime in general - especially when handling fireworks and sparklers.
After a long, cold, and seemingly endless winter, it looks like Summer has finally arrived - with a vengeance! With temperatures in the high 90s, humidity at an all time, record high, it's quite easy to forget to keep yourself hydrated!
Dehydration can happen rapidly to anyone at anytime, and can be particularly dangerous if not treated, or prevented effectively. This holiday week, (and throughout the rest of Summer) be sure to:
According to The Weather Channel, the UV index for the upcoming holiday week is extremely high. That means, the sun's rays are even more damaging than usual. Before you go outside, it is best to wear sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 30, is waterproof, and protects against both UVA and UVB rays.
From all of us at Mountainside Medical, we wish everyone a safe, and happy holiday week!
