    Dear Reader,
    Ah, it’s summer. Days are sunny and long. Evenings are warm, filled with good food off the barbecue and memorable moments with friends. Long lazy naps in the hammock and more accidents than at any other time of the year!
    Just by the very nature of the season it stands to reason that we expose ourselves to more potential accidents just because of the extended time we spend outdoors.
    Cuts, scrapes, bruises, burns and bites are hiding just around the corner. They say that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That’s a valid point, but it’s impossible to avoid every potential incident.
    What makes better sense is to be prepared for any eventuality. That preparation includes knowing exactly what to do when you are hit with a summer emergency. No, you don’t need to become a doctor or even an EMT.
