Safety Tips for an Enjoyable West Virginia Memorial Day

Memorial day is the unofficial start of summer for most Americans and, more important, a day where we remember the sacrifices so many made for our country.  In celebrating and remembering this memorial day, millions of Americans hit the road, have barbecues, and spend time outdoors with loved ones.  To ensure you have a safe and enjoyable memorial day, here are some safety tips to follow:

Fire Precautions

  • When using a grill, be sure to clean it thoroughly to remove and dust or grease.  Check for gas leaks; use the grill outside and not in a porch or other enclosed space.
  • Do not park your vehicle on grass as the hot exhaust can easily ignite dry plants/grass/vegitation.
  • If you plan to use a fire pit, be sure to put out the fire completely before leaving it unattended.

Sun Safety

  • Wear a hat or sunglasses
  • Use a suncreen with an SPF 15 or higher, applying it regularly
  • Drink lots of water and stay hydrated

Travel Precautions

  • Don't drink and drive
  • Don't travel with anyone who has been drinking
  • Always wear your seatbelt
  • Make sure your vehicle has been serviced prior to a long road trip
  • Avoid driving and operating a cell phone
  • Familiarize yourself with your surroundings and know where the nearest emergency room is in case of an emergency

Water Safety

  • Don't swim alone
  • Wear a life vest while boating
  • Never allow a child to be in or near the water unsupervised

From the attorneys and staff at the Manchin Injury Law Group, we give thanks to the sacrifices of the countless Americans who placed others above themselves.  We wish you and your family a happy, enjoyable, and safe Memorial Day.
