Summer Safety

It's almost here!  We've been waiting for this July 1st weekend for so long and now, with it  right around the corner, we wanted to share with you some safety tips as you strive to have the best summer holiday ever!

1)  With water all around us, whether swimming, boating, water skiing .... one must make safety the #1 priority.  Remember when in the water to always wear a PFD (personal flotation device) ... ALWAYS!  Follow the safety signage posted on the beaches and/or instructions from our life guards on our beaches regarding water safety.  Remember, here in Wasaga Beach, your pooch is only allowed on Beach Area 3.... and only on a leash!  Alcohol or drugs are NOT allowed on our beaches.

2) The sun is a lot stronger than in years gone by and with skin cancer so prevalent nowadays, so during the daytime (rain or shine!) be sure to always wear a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF.  Apply and reapply during the day.  Make sure you put lots on your children too.  Remember, you can purchase sunscreen that is waterproof so be prepared for the numerous trips in and out of the water.

3)  With all the fun in the woods and trails around us everywhere, we must remember that there are also wood ticks in the Southern Georgian Bay.  Not all species of wood tick bites can cause Lyme disease but a bite from the blacklegged wood tick bite could cause Lyme disease to you or your pet (click here for Lyme disease info). There are a number of holistic potions you can prepare and use to keep wood ticks at bay.  Try the following....

- 20 drops of Rose Geranium essential oil

- 5 drops of Lavender essential oil

- 10 drops of Sweetghrass essential oil

- 5 drops of Citronella or Lemon essential oil

Mix this all together with 4 oz of witch hazel, rubbing alcohol, apple cider vinegar, vodka or distilled water.  Put in a spray bottle and use as needed.  Safe for people and pets.

4) Never, ever  EVER leave your children or pets in a car unattended.  It only takes moments for the interior or a vehicle to become as hot as an oven.  Unfortunately, many deaths during the summer months are attributed to living beings who have been left in hot vehicles.

5)  Be kind and think of others.  Pick up your garbage.  Don't play your music too loudly.   Respect the 'space' of others.   Keep the noise down when it is bed time for most folks. 

The summer of 2018 is going to be awesome in the Southern Georgian Bay.  Get out there and enjoy.  Please click here to go to the Wasaga Beach or  Simcoe County calendar for a list of all the summer time activities.
