- If you're using the BBQ make sure little kids and pets don't run around the grill.
- Headed to a parade or ceremony? Take a picture of everyone in a group on your digital camera or phone when you first arrive. If anyone, especially a child, gets separated from the group you will have a picture to share and will remember what they were wearing.

- Using fireworks or planning an outdoor fire? Make sure to have a garden hose or bucket of water handy for emergencies.
