Heading out to or hosting a Memorial Day party? Here are a few important things to keep in mind to make this a safe weekend for everyone. If you are using a charcoal grill, make sure it is in a well-ventilated area. Never use a charcoal grill indoors. Just like in the kitchen, keep a child-free zone around the grill.
Holiday parties often include a backyard or community pool. Make sure there is a designated water watcher who has constant eye-to-eye contact with children. Lastly, if you plan to have alcohol at your Memorial Day party, assign a designated driver or call a taxi or car service.
