Let's Keep Summer Safe and Fun
It's that time of year when the days get longer and the temperatures get hotter. People take advantage of the warmer weather by spending more time outdoors enjoying many activities like:
 
  • Camping
  • Hiking
  • Swimming
  • Biking
  • Fishing

 

While enjoying the outdoors please keep in mind that heat is the number one weather-related killer in the United States. On average, excessive heat claims more lives each year than floods, lightning, tornadoes and hurricanes combined. By taking a few simple precautions we can "beat the heat" and keep the fun in summer.
