Having a summer house in Hollywood, Homestead, or anywhere in South Florida is a wonderful way to enjoy the beaches and sunshine. To really enjoy your time in your second home or vacation property, however, you may want to take safety precautions to keep safe:
Inflatable pools are a popular choice for many families. They are small enough to fit into many yards and do not come with the larger installation costs of in-ground pools. Inflatable pools range from large pools which are closer to in-ground versions to shallow kiddie pools.
While these swimming options can be a fun way to swim in your Hollywood home, however, they are not without risks. Many pool drownings and injuries in Hollywood and across Florida are linked to inflatable swimming pools. In fact, across the country, one child sustains a fatal injury in an inflatable pool on average every five days during the summer season.
Hollywood and South Florida in general are wonderful spots for gardeners. Many beautiful plants grow naturally in this warm climate and gardens of sage, palm trees, fruits and vegetables, herbs, magnolias, beautyberries, grasses, cypress and more. The warmth and sunshine is a dream for growing any kind of garden.
Whether you garden yourself or hire a landscape professional, Hollywood’s climate allows you to plant a beautiful space of flowering plants, a rock garden, an exotic blooms garden or anything else you desire. However, while gardening can be a healthful activity, it can also lead to injuries and even fatalities. If you work in the garden, you will want to take precautions to stay safe.
Pools are a great way to enjoy some recreation and get low-impact exercise. If you don’t have your own pool in your Hollywood or South Florida home, you may be able to use a public pool. Public pools in recreation centers, condo buildings and other public spaces, however, come with their own risks.
Here’s how to avoid injuries when using Hollywood and South Florida public pools this summer:

May is skin cancer awareness month, so this is a good month to review safety precautions when it comes to the sun.
