Summer Safety in July
Summer is a time when people and their families take vacation and enjoy the outdoors with many activities and experiences. As we have fun, we must also consider safety as we do more things outdoors. Some of common areas of concern are the heat, the sun, bugs, and water safety.
The National Safety Council has some good safety reminders and education for the summer. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also has some great resources to help you understand preventive considerations and action for the family and children.
Summer is also a time when Farmers Markets are in full swings with lots of fresh produce including a variety of fruits and vegetables. The Mississippi Farmer's Market on High Street in Jackson is a great place in central Mississippi and is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. You can find a Farmers Market and a Certified Farmers Market in your area where they list them by county.
