June is National Safety Month: Stay Informed
Posted at 3:45 p.m.
June is National Safety Month and we will be providing critical summer safety messages twice a week throughout the month.
Fairfax County’s Risk Management Division and the Office of Emergency Management encourage all of us to take a few minutes this month to become aware of some of leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths, and the easy steps you can take to stay healthy and injury-free. Some of the topics we will cover this month will include safety; slips, trips and falls prevention, and how to safely play and work in the summer heat.
