If you're packing raw meat, fish or poultry for a picnic, keep it cold

and securely wrapped so that the juices don't leak out onto other

foods. Be sure to bring moist towelettes to clean your hands with after

handling raw foods.

If your family enjoys swimming as part of your celebration, be sure to

follow some simple water safety tips: Make sure everyone has a swimming

buddy, pay attention to local weather conditions, and always keep an

eye on young children.
