Tips From Meridian Health On How To Have A Safe & Happy Labor Day Holiday Weekend


There is still plenty of "Summer" left and time to enjoy outdoors here at the Jersey Shore, but Meridian Health wants to share some tips on how to make it a healthy time.

Shawn & Sue were joined this week by Dr. Brad Pulver, M.D. Medical Director of Emergency Services for Ocean Medical Center in Brick and the Ocean Care Center in Point Pleasant.

Dr. Pulver talked about some of the key areas of Summer safety ....

  • Sun exposure
  • Keep hydrated
  • Be careful when using grills and if there are young children around
  • Supervise children while swimming in a pool or the ocean
  • When at the beach, only swim in areas with a lifeguard and be careful of riptides.
  • If drinking alcohol, have a designated driver, and make sure someone not drinking is watching children, especially near water.
