Summer Safety Tips to Beat the Heat

Be Safe in the Heat

Happy Independence Day, neighbors! July 4th is a time of celebration - backyard grilling, neighborhood gatherings, and fireworks displays. Unfortunately, July is also the peak month for grill fires, and every year, an estimated 11,000 people are treated for injuries related to fireworks. Also, more pets go missing on the Fourth of July than any other day of the year. 

As you prepare to celebrate, the City of Margate reminds you to take the following precautions to keep you, your family, pets, and neighborhoods safe. 

1. Make sure your pet's ID tags are up-to-date and securely fastened to your pet's collar. 

2. Attend the City's 4th of July Extravaganza and Fireworks Show - leave the lighting to the professionals. The best way to protect your family is to not use fireworks at home. Get the City's schedule of events.

3. Fire up the grill! But only outdoors and never on porches. Keep children and pets away from the grill and never leave it unattended. Only you can prevent grill fires! 

4. While we know swimming will most likely be in your Fourth of July plans, never swim alone. Avoid using alcohol around water. And please, NEVER leave children unattended near any body of water. 

Have a wonderful holiday!
