It's the time of year for barbecues, bikes and boats, and the Swift Current Fire Department is sharing safety tips about all three of these summer activities.

Deputy Fire Chief Pete L'Heureux says if you're getting your barbecue out of winter storage, take time to clean the grills and the bottom of the barbecue to prevent flare-ups, and make sure it's put far enough away from the exterior walls of your home or anything else that's combustible. He added with more people on their bicycles again, both cyclists and motorists should be aware and cautious around traffic, and on the water, L'Heureux reminds boaters that they need to be licensed to operate a watercraft, make sure their life jackets are on at all times, and be courteous of other boaters.

Ken Audette talked with Pete L'Heureux about those summer safety topics on Thursday.
