HEALTH TIP
Don't let your tots burn
When you head outside for family fun, be sure to protect small children from burns. Keep sunblock handy and protect against other burn hazards:
1. Keep little ones away from grills, fire pits and campfires.
2. Don't let children play with or near fireworks or sparklers.
3. Before heading out, check children's car seats for hot straps or buckles. These can heat up quickly in a car parked in direct sunlight.
