As always, we would like to remind everyone to drive cautiously as children will be playing, riding bikes and enjoying the summer weather, while continuing social distancing and other safety precautions.
Of course summer weather usually means higher temperatures. so remember these tips to beat the heat:
- Take frequent water breaks
- Apply sunscreen with SPF of at least 15
- Never leave children or pets unattended in a vehicle
- Seek medical attention immediately for any signs of heat-related
If you are traveling in a vehicle please remember to wear your seat belt and never Drink and Drive. While traveling our roadways, boating, camping, or fishing, please remember to practice safety at all times. Mind the speed limits and always be on the lookout for children at play and crossing the streets.
