A recent video produced by the Jordanian Civil Defense highlights the most frequent accidents occurring during summer vacations and indicates how to avoid dangerous situations and preventing serious injuries.
In the Mediterranean countries, during summer months, more accidents happen than during any other time throughout the year. From minor accidents like scrapes and bruises, to more serious ones like drownings, car accidents and wild fires. This is due to the fact that during summer families practice more open air activities like picnics, cookouts, reunions, and beach gatherings. These activities, if not diligently planned to avoid accidents, may put at risk the safety of people, in particular of children. The Jordanian Civil Defense, as demonstrated during the implementation of the awareness raising project supported by the PPRD South, considers that education in safety and first aid is key to properly prevent summer risks.
