The Home Safety Council has a website entitled,  This site can be a great resource for home safety.  It has great information for keeping your backyard safe during the summer “fun” months.  Most of the US is experiencing a heat wave right now (except it appears for the Pacific Northwest where I reside — bummer) so this information seems pertinent.

Five quick steps to a safe backyard include:

1.  Check play equipment for danger.

2.  Designate a safe zone around the grill.

3.  Childproof the pool (cannot be stressed enough).

4.  Inspect your deck! (If it’s old consider bringing in a professional inspector)

5.  Keep fuel, pesticides and harmful chemicals stored out of reach of children.
