As Memorial Day weekend approaches, marking the unofficial start of summer vacation, the Bibb Sheriff’s Office emphasizes safety for all holiday revelers. With the promise of fun and relaxation, the Sheriff’s Office offers crucial tips to prevent crime and accidents, ensuring an enjoyable holiday for everyone.

For those traveling out of town, securing your home is paramount. Ensure all windows and doors are properly locked, and refrain from posting vacation photos on social media until after your return to avoid potential security risks.

Prior to hitting the road, it’s essential to check tire pressure and complete any necessary vehicle maintenance to guarantee a safe journey. Adhering to speed limits and driving cautiously is crucial, especially considering increased highway congestion during the holiday, which elevates the risk of accidents. Always wear seatbelts and never drink and drive.

For those planning water activities, practicing water safety is imperative. Avoid swimming alone, wear a life vest while boating, and closely supervise children near water bodies to prevent accidents.

With the sun shining bright, staying hydrated and applying sunscreen are vital to avoid overheating and sunburn.

Always keep emergency numbers accessible as emergencies can occur anytime, even during holidays.

During the Memorial Day holiday, Bibb County Sheriff’s deputies will be vigilant, particularly targeting individuals who choose to drink and drive, aiming to ensure everyone’s safety.

The Bibb Sheriff’s Office is committed to contributing to a safe Memorial Day celebration for all.
