The time between Memorial Day and Labor Day is a busy time for emergency medical services.
Officials at the trauma center at Kern Medical Center said they see an increase in the number of traumas in the summer caused from outdoor activities and car crashes.
They said other outdoor activities like barbecuing and using fireworks also lead to emergency room visits.
Summer is also a tough time for Houchin Community Blood Bank.
Officials said 20 percent of the entire blood supply comes from high school students. During the summer they are not able to tap into that source.
Officials said it's even more important during the summer for blood donors to stay on a regular blood donation schedule.
