Yes, summer is here full throttle.  With the heat comes responsibility to yourself and others.  Please make sure you:

  1. Drink lots of water.
  2. Stay in air conditioning or use fans.
  3. Walk outside only in morning or late evening.
  4. Limit physical activity during hottest part of day.
  5. NEVER leave children or pets unattended in a car with windows rolled up.

Sometimes, the handicapped or elderly will not open windows or take precautions which causes them to become ill or put them at risk due to severe heat.  If you know someone who needs to be checked on, please call us and we will certainly check on and assist that citizen.  Please watch out for each other and, again, call if you think we can help.
