Summer Fire Safety
During days of extreme heat you are reminded to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, check on the elderly and those without air conditioners and also make sure all outdoor animals have fresh water. Those with respiratory issues should also take precaution on hot humid days because they usually have air quality warnings associated with them.
Summer fire season is upon us. We would like to remind everyone that open, uncontrolled backyard fires are illegal. Also make sure your BBQ grills are in proper working order and far enough away from any structures to prevent radiant heat from lighting anything on fire.
