Last Lazy Days of Summer – Protect Yourself and your Family

Source: US Environmental Protection Agency

Summer Vacation may be almost over but there’s still time to protect yourself and your family on vacation or during a staycation.

  • Breathe easy:  Going for a hike, bike ride, or working outside?  Check your air quality before you go, and know when to take action to protect your health.

  • Driving along:  In hot weather and long trips, save money and fuel by rolling the windows down at low speeds but use the vehicle air conditioner at highway speeds. Also, be sure your car is tuned up and the tires properly inflated.
