by having a barbeque with family and friends, summer parties can be
an excellent way to unwind and have fun. They also pose unique risks
to homeowners hosting the party. Here are some tips for keeping your
summer party safe to avoid claims on your homeowners insurance:

year, according to the CPSC. Avoid pool accidents by:

from gaining unassisted access.
plenty of floatation devices available to guests and creating a
rule that all children wear floatation devices when near the pool.
there is a sober adult watching the pool at all times.
& Eating Safety – It may be the last type of accident you’re
concerned about but drinking responsibly and serving properly cooked
food are vitally important to the safety of your guests and to your
liability as a host. Here are some safety tips:
plenty of food to guests to encourage them to eat a lot while
any raucous behavior and ensure anyone who appears to be inebriated
has a responsible ride home.

appropriate internal temperature to prevent food poisoning.These
