Staying Safe During Summer

Safety Tips for Enjoying Atlanta This Summer

Summer is right around the corner. Metro Atlanta offers so much during the summer months. From festivals to food trucks, you have an opportunity to enjoy it all. But sometimes good times can turn sour if safety isn’t made a top priority.

Here are some safety tips for enjoying summer in Atlanta:

  1. Always have a designated driver. When enjoying festivities that include alcoholic beverages be sure to have a sober driver available or use a car service like Uber.
  2. Use helmets when biking. Biking is such a popular activity in Metro Atlanta, especially in summer. Be sure to use a properly sized helmet when bicycling or riding a motorcycle.
  3. Be aware of your surroundings. It’s great to visit new places and experience new things, but you must remain aware of your surroundings at all times to be safe. Be sure you have a safe place to store your ID, credit cards, and money as well.
  4. Have an exit plan. Whenever you visit a venue or event, you should always know where the nearest exit is. You never know when an emergency may happen.
  5. Make water safety a priority. Boating, jet skis, and beach parties are all popular summer happenings in Atlanta. Be sure to have a flotation device and it is helpful to learn CPR as well.
