Beat the Heat!

It's coming into that time of year again in Arizona where the temperatures are beyond HOT! With record breaking temps that began in January, Arizonans beware!!! It's gonna be another REALLY hot summer! I'd like to take a moment to remind you all that even though we are lucky enough to still be enjoying 90 to 100 degree temperatures, it's still important to remember to STAY HYDRATED! One of the leading causes of heat stroke in AZ is over-exposure to the sun/heat and dehydration (insufficient water/fluid intake). This doesn't just apply to us adults who are brave enough to venture out into the heat, but for you little ones and pets too!

Also, please remember, with these climbing temperatures it's never safe to leave children or pets unattended outdoors or in vehicles. It only takes several minutes to cause a lifetime of regret.

So with that said...Lather yourself up with sunscreen, grab a bottle of water and stay cool! Enjoy your Arizona summer!!
