Fun in the Sun, Florida Style [INFOGRAPHIC]

Last updated 1 year ago

Fun in the summertime sun is a Florida tradition. From beach-filled days to nightly cookouts, Floridians rarely see the indoors until fall rolls around. Although summertime activities are fun, it’s important to take a few safety precautions to make sure they stay that way. Sun protection is a staple of Florida living. Be sure to reapply your sunscreen every 40 minutes if you’ve been active and every few hours if you haven’t. When it’s your turn to host the cookout, make sure you serve foods at the right temperature so you don’t plate up bacteria. Backyard pools are great, but make sure one person is tasked with watching the kids. This infographic from Fort Walton Beach Medical Center, a Florida hospital and ER, offers tips for staying healthy at the beach and in the backyard. Pass this vital information along to your neighbors and friends so no one has to miss a minute of the good times this summer.
