101 Days of Summer Safety Day 49

Julian, age 8, reminds us to, “Always wear a helmet when you ride a bike!!”

Hi kids! Always wear shoes that help to keep your feet protected.
If you have shoe laces, make sure they are tied correctly.

Never ride with your shoe laces untied - they may get caught and cause you to have an accident!

Always wear a helmet and bright clothing so you can be seen easily.

101 Days of Summer Safety Day 48

Jenny, age 9, says to never play in the road!

Hey kids! Do you sometimes need to cross the road where there is no pedestrian crossing? If you do, always cross from a place where you can see left and right clearly.

Crossing on a hilly road can be dangerous! Take extra care to ensure you cross from an area where you can see cars, motorbikes, trucks, and buses easily!

When crossing the road with friends, always help each other to stay safe.

1943 - TBF aircraft (VC 13) based on board USS Core (ACV 13) sinks German submarine U 487, 720 miles south-southwest of Fayal, Azores.

#NAFECis ...Cross training! Here MA1 Alexandru Sandou prepares the theater for the monthly awards quarters. In addition to being the command’s collateral duty Career Counselor, and assisting the Admin Department with various tasks, he is the Leading Petty Officer for the Security Department, a vital link in the chain of command for the young men and women who patrol the mean streets of NAF El Centro and keep us safe. His favorite hobby? Juggling the six phones on his desk, especially when they go off at the same time.

Every week on Friday, we want to introduce you to the unsung heroes of the base. Titled #NAFECis we want you all to meet the people that make this installation great and work hard to accomplish our mission.

101 Days of Summer Safety Day 46

Matthew, age 9, says “Don’t go in the road!”

You need to check with your mom and dad about where you're allowed to ride your bike. You need to know how far you're allowed to go and whether you should ride on the sidewalk or in the street. Kids younger than 10 years should ride on the sidewalk and avoid the street.

No matter where you ride, you need to keep an eye out for cars and trucks. Even if you're just riding on sidewalk, a car may pull out of its driveway into the path of your bike. If you're crossing a busy road, it's best to walk your bike across the street.

A bike path free of cars is a great choice if there's one in your area. Just remember to share the path with the other riders, walkers, and strollers who also might be using it! And if you're going on a long ride, bring some water along with you, it’s hot here in the desert.

101 Days of Summer Safety Day 45

Kimberly, age 8, watches out for her friends in the beach and pools swim area.

Canon balls, diving stunts, wave riding. Keeping cool in the pool, lake, ocean or water park is what summer's all about for many kids. But emergency room physicians say summer is also when they see many water-related injuries and deaths among children. Simple safety precautions could avoid a lot of preventable tragedies.

The number one rule around water: Parents and caregivers need to watch their kids like a hawk!

101 Days of Summer Safety Day 43

Xander, age 10, knows not to take things from strangers.

Hi kids! We all love presents and sweets, but we should never accept things from strangers! Be alert of your surroundings and always be safe! Make good decisions and always say 'no, thanks!' to situations that are not right.
