Stay Safe as Temps Heat Up

Post Date:06/07/2018 10:53 AM

This week the Valley saw its first extreme heat advisory of the summer. Remember to use caution as midday temperatures spike. Stay hydrated and carry extra water in your vehicle in case you become stranded. Never leave pets or children in a vehicle, even for a moment; temperatures rise quickly. Take frequent breaks from the heat, and limit exercise and activities to the morning and evening hours if possible. You can also help your community by donating water, sunscreen, hats and sunglasses. Peoria is part of a statewide network, the Heat Relief Network, providing hydration stations and emergency heat relief. Heat Relief Network locations can be found online at www.azmag.gov/Programs/Homelessness/Heat-Relief-Regional-Network.
