Labor Day tips

-A A +A

Many people view Labor Day as the end of summer and their last chance to travel, go to the lake or camp in the mountains and national forests or fire up the grill for family gatherings. The American Red Cross offers safety tips to help everyone have a safe and enjoyable holiday.
“While many people will spend the Labor Day weekend traveling and spending time with family and friends, no one should take a vacation from safety,” said Rahim Balsara, CEO of The American Red Cross in New Mexico.. “It’s still important that people work to remain vigilant on the road, at the lake, in the mountains and forests and at cookouts.”
