Summer safety tips

Summer has arrived and it’s a great time to go places and make beautiful memories. Now that school is almost over and families have more time together, expect heavy traffic as people head to the malls, provinces, and other summer spots to unwind, engage in various outdoor activities, and enjoy the scenery.

Unfortunately, summer can also be a dangerous time if you’re not careful. This is the time when accidents occur because of poor planning, neglect or carelessness. To avoid problems, here are some safety tips courtesy of Nish Arafa, PR manager of Airborne Technologies, a registered trademark of Jason Borne Technologies Inc. (Contact Nos. 09175881826 / 02-5085172), a local distributor of high-quality yet affordable power banks located at the Eton Centris Station, EDSA corner Quezon Avenue, Quezon City.  

Be prepared. You’ll never know what can happen on the road so have a first aid kit with you at all times. Don’t try to fit a hospital in your car or backpack. Nish said your first aid kit should be handy so you can bring it anywhere. Keep one in your bag, in the glove compartment of your car, and at home. It should contain bandages, gauze tape, scissors, hydrogen peroxide or iodine, burn cream, calamine lotion, and tweezers.  This will help you deal with minor scrapes, burns, rashes or splinters. Don’t forget to bring over-the-counter medicines for diarrhea, motion sickness, allergy, headache, and pain for good measure.

Stay away from the sun. The sun gives life but it can also kill. Prolonged exposure to its deadly ultraviolet rays can lead to premature aging, blindness, and cancer.  Protect yourself by using a broad-spectrum sunblock with a high SPF (sun protection factor).  Apply it liberally on exposed areas of the body at least 15 minutes before going out and reapply every two hours or more often if you’re sweating or swimming. If you love the great outdoors, Nish said avoid going out between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. when the sun’s rays are strongest. Wear light, loose clothes, sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat or use an umbrella. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. 

Make sure your mobile phone, camera, and other gadgets are fully charged so you won’t miss important messages and phone calls, and you can take beautiful pictures of your summer outing. Be ready on the road and create lovely memories with a good power bank that’s safe, easy to carry, and capable of charging several gadgets. Nish said Airborne Tech power banks are lightweight, have attractive colors and designs, and can charge all kinds of gadgets at once because they have two USB ports for easy charging and accessibility. There’s even one to charge laptops called the Arsenal Laptop Power Bank. These powerful devices are assembled abroad following international quality control standards so you get nothing but the best. 

Despite its many features, Nish added that Airborne Tech power banks are affordable and have a one-year warranty, making them the ideal choice for students, businessmen, travelers, and photographers who rely on power-hungry gadgets in this fast-paced world. For more information, visit,, or e-mail
