Time to start thinking about heat safety...

**Drink plenty of water, wear light-colored and lightweight clothing and apply sunscreen if you are going to be outside. 

**Avoid strenuous activities during the hottest time of the day. 

**And NEVER leave kids or pets in the car!!

Be safe in the heat this week!

**Make sure your pets have access to shade and clean drinking water and don't walk them on hot pavement! A good "rule of thumb" is if the pavement is too hot to keep the back of your hand on for more than few seconds, it is too hot for your pets.

Keep your pets safe in the heat!
