As fall approaches and parents and children prepare for the start of the new school year, safety should be top of mind. Accidents can happen in any season, but there are some specific things that you should think about in the fall.
In the colder months, homeowners often enjoy relaxing around an outdoor firepit or bonfire or sitting in front of an indoor fireplace with family and friends. Serious injuries can occur if someone isn’t careful when tending to a fire or if a child plays too close to the flames. Have burn cream and gauze on hand so you’ll be prepared to treat minor burns.
Supplies to Treat Sports-Related Injuries
Many kids enjoy participating in afterschool sports. Even if your child doesn’t belong to a team, playing in the backyard or riding a bicycle can lead to injuries. Make sure that you have with a first aid kit with bandages, antiseptic ointment, hot and cold packs, over-the-counter pain relievers, tape, wraps, and other supplies.
Eye Protection for Outdoor Activities
When you’re working in the yard or participating in projects as a hobby, dust and debris may become airborne. Dust and dirt can irritate the eyes, and stones and other objects that go flying while doing yardwork can cause serious injuries. Make sure that you have eye wash, eye drops, and other supplies to treat minor eye injuries.
First Aid Supplies for Your Vehicle
An accident can happen while you’re away from home or while you’re driving a child to or from school or after school activities. Make sure that you’re prepared for anything by carrying a fully stocked first aid kit in your car.
