Help your kids stay safe and healthy while they enjoy summer fun! Check out kids summer safety information and tips. Plus more great tips to keep in mind for summer safety including heat stroke, water safety, and summer driving tips.

Food borne illnesses increase in the summer because bacteria grow faster in warmer temperatures and humidity. On top of that, more people are eating and preparing food outdoors, at picnics and barbecues, where refrigeration and places to wash hands are not readily available.

To prevent food borne illnesses:

  • Be sure to wash your hands before preparing or serving any food. Make sure your children wash their hands, or at least use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, before eating.
  • Never cross-contaminate. Do not allow any raw meat or poultry to come into contact with any other food or plates or utensils.
  • Consider the temperature. Use a thermometer and be sure to cook all meat and poultry to the correct temperatures to kill any harmful bacteria. Keep all perishable foods in the refrigerator and do not keep leftovers unrefrigerated for more than one or two hours.

Earthquake preparedness is essential in California. Earthquakes are inevitable, but the damage from earthquakes is not. Actually, almost all earthquake damages and losses can be reduced by steps you take before, during, and after. Start preparing with the seven steps to do before, during and after earthquakes. Ready.gov has emergency preparedness publications available on a wide variety emergency situations.
