Hot weather safety tips

With hot, muggy and dry weather continuing this week, here are some tips for you to beat the heat!

#1:  Drink water – even if you’re not thirsty.  Thirst is the first sign that you are dehydrated.

#2:  Avoid alcohol and caffeine.  These will dehydrate you.

#3:  Slow down.  Keep outdoor activities to a minimum or take it easy when outside in the heat.

#4:  Check on fido & kitty.  Make sure our pets have cool water and shade.

#5:  Beat the heat, check the backseat.  Make sure no one is left in the car…it gets way too hot inside!

#6:  Know your body.  If you start to feel light-headed or nauseous, get out of the sun and into the a/c!

Remember summer is meant for play and fun, but please do it safely!  We are tracking slim/no rain chance for the next 7-10 days!
