Heat Visits Us Again Friday

Posted 9:59 a.m.

Another heat advisory is in effect from noon to 7 p.m. today. The heat index will be over 100 degrees. Yesterday on this blog, we shared four simple ways we can keep ourselves and each other safe.

One of those ways to keep our whole community safe, including our furry friends, is to never leave pets unattended in vehicles. The image below helps illustrate and our animal control officers provide more tips to protect our pets in the heat.
