It's summertime and the living is easy.
But sometimes, unexpected hazards, especially in areas you're unfamiliar with can ruin your vacation.
When going to a new beach, always make sure there's a lifeguard on duty. If waters are rough, the lifeguard will know and in some cases they'll close the beach if it’s too dangerous.
Know the wildlife if you're camping - make sure you don't let your children or pets wander. Other animals may be sharing the woods with you.
If you're hiking, know the trail before you go.
While at a park ask the rangers or staff about the length and destination of the trails. Make sure you have access to water - hydration is key in the heat.
And always obey any warning signs you come across.
They are there for a reason.
