Valentine's Day Safety

So what does Valentine's Day have to do with Safety? Safety behaviors decrease the likelihood we will suffer a potentially life altering injury.

Below are tips from the CDC to make this Valentine's Day and every day after safe.

Be safe
Gear up. Are you considering a new, potentially risky, or unsafe activity? Be sure to use appropriate safety gear, including seat belts, life vests, and helmets to help prevent injury.

Watch the sparks. If you decide to cook a romantic dinner, light some candles, or have a cozy fire, don’t leave them unattended.

Be aware. Women are more likely to be victims of sexual violence, including intimate partner violence, than men. Risk factors such as drinking alcohol and using drugs are associated with a greater likelihood of violence.
