5 Ways To Stay Safe While Enjoying The Great Outdoors

Summertime is a great time to enjoy being outdoors. There are dangers to look out for, though, and they don’t always come in the form of a shark attack. Sometimes the sun can be just as treacherous. Here are 5 ways to stay safe while enjoying the great outdoors.


Drink Lots Of Fluids

But make sure to avoid alcoholic drinks to stay safe while you’re out in the sun. Sugary drinks should also be avoided, as they can cause you to lose even more body fluid.


Stay Indoors

If your home does not have air conditioning, try spending a few hours at a library or shopping mall. The break will help your body stay cooler once you do go back outside.


Wear Light-Colored, Lightweight, Loose-Fitting Clothing 

Listen to your body and dress comfortably in the heat.


Wear Sunglasses And A Wide-Brimmed Hat

And don’t forget the SPF 15 or higher sunscreen. Choose one that offers both “broad spectrum” and “UVA/UVB protection” to be safe.


Pay Attention To Shark Attack Warnings

Sharks are swimming closer and closer to swimmers this summer. But can swimmers sue anyone for compensation if they do become a victim of a shark attack? In order to obtain compensation for a shark attack injury, someone must either be held responsible for taking action that resulted in the shark attack, or neglecting to take action that could have prevented the attack. For example, if the city should have known that a shark attack was imminent but failed to take action that a reasonable person would be expected to take in order to help prevent the shark attack, that would be considered a case of negligence.
