ISLIP TOWN SUPERVISOR ANGIE CARPENTER URGES RESIDENTS TO OBSERVE RULES FOR SAFETY AT BEACHES AND POOLS IN ADDITION TO ALL ROADS AND WATERWAYS DURING THE JULY 4TH WEEKEND

Islip, New York – July 2, 2015 – As the July 4th weekend and the season for backyard parties, beach-goers and boaters is in full swing, Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter urges all residents and visitors to exercise caution and observe all rules for safety while home and traveling.

“I urge all residents and visitors to please exercise caution and observe all rules for safety on our roads and waterways, especially during the upcoming July 4th weekend,” Supervisor Carpenter said. “All too often, we hear about serious injuries and crowded hospital emergency rooms during this otherwise enjoyable holiday shared with family and friends. It is imperative that all people obey the laws established to protect them and ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend,” Supervisor Carpenter continued.

In addition to reminding residents to observe rules for safety while driving and boating, Supervisor Carpenter also mentions the importance of exercising the utmost precautions while visiting any of Islip’s beautiful parks, pools, beaches, marinas and waterways as well as being cautious in or around any swimming pools.

“It is important for people to remember accidents can and do happen if they forget to make safety a top priority. Every year, we hear about too many serious injuries caused by unsafe driving and boating. I urge everyone to remember the laws that apply in these situations: “No drinking and driving and no drinking and boating. This helps to ensure a safe and enjoyable holiday for all,” Supervisor Carpenter added.
