Youve heard the expression: better safe than sorry.

Or maybe you believe theres good karma in being prepared. Whatever prompted you to read this article, consider it a golden opportunity to get organized and educated on the steps to have a happy and safe summer season.

Heres the 411. Kids are at home and bound to get into mischief. Summer sports and swimming pools work well with a first aid plan.

With the goal of making your summer swell, your workplace well-guarded, and your home a happy holiday haven, do a little research and get the family—or work team—together for an afternoon of planning and preparation. You might even invite a Red Cross professional to swing by the office or afternoon play at the park for first aid training.
