The indoor slip and fall hazards you face are consistent throughout the year. Wet tiles, broken steps, and unsecured carpets can cause injuries 12 months out of the year. Outdoor slip and fall hazards, on the other hand, tend to vary by the season.
The midst of summer is upon us and during this time of year, many Illinois residents and families choose to enjoy the long, hot days and nights outside, gathered around campfires and backyard fire pits. Often, these outdoor fires are used to cook hot dogs, shish kabobs, and other foods like marshmallows for s'mores. Sitting around the campfire eating a freshly charred dinner is a great way to make warm summer memories with family and friends.
