So whether you're swimming, barbecuing, or dining outdoors the follow- ing tips will help ensure that you, your family, and friends enjoy every moment. Be sure everyone can identify dangerous plants such as poison oak, ivy and sumac. If someone touches one of these plants, rinse the area right away with soap and running water for at least five minutes. Never underestimate the power of an insect bite or sting. Insect stings may canse serious problems and even death for those with allergies. Go to a hospital right away if you develop hives after a sting, or have dizziness, breathing trouble or swelling around the eyes and mouth Be sure te check the lal on insect repellent. Select a product that is safe for the age of the user. Follow the dJrectone for apph'cation on the label. Lighter fluid, gasoline, torch and lamp oils can be deadly if swallowed. Watch children closely at all times when these are being used. Use camp stoves, grills, and generators outside, never inside buildings or tents. Inhaling chlorine prod- ucts can irritate the respi- ratory system. Homeowners who have swimming pools should store pool chemicals in a safe and secure place, out of children's reach. Always wash hands and counters before preparing food and clean utensils for cooking and serving. Addi- tiorm]] make sure you wash hands, cutting boards, uten- sils and dishes with hot, soapy water after handling raw meat, poultry or seafood. Store, cook and reheat food at the proper tempera- tures. Refrigerated foods should not be leK out at tem- peratures above 40 degrees F and do not let food sit out at room temperature for more than two hours. Watch for signs of food poisoning including fever, headache, diarrhea, stomach pains, nausea and vomiting. Do not leave products cmataining alcohol where chil- dren can reach them. Alcolml can be dangerous to children, leading to respiratory depres- sion, coma or even death. Signs that a child may have consumed alcohol include sleepines& Even with the best care and safeguards, accidents do happen. If you suspect a poi- soning, don't wait to see what happens.
