Tip of the week

Arizona heat is picking up already and it won’t cool down for months to come. Hydration can help prevent individuals from becoming victim to a heat related illness. With the sun beating down on vehicles, they become greenhouses. Do not leave kids and/or animals unattended, security forces will respond, and if need be will take any precaution to save a life. Save a window, bring the kids.
