Tips to Stay Safe

July Safety: Extreme Heat and Firework Safety

The July safety tips arrive in the setting of an unusually hot Southern Arizona summer. Recognition and prevention of harmful effects of extreme heat to people and pets will be our focus. Additionally, as Green Valley Fire is now the “Santa Rita Fire District” (note our new name, and welcome Sahuarita readers), no summer safety article would be complete without discussing fire prevention and fireworks safety.

Extreme Heat is defined as a period of two days or longer, of temperatures above 90 degrees. Residents of Southern Arizona are exposed to extreme heat every summer. Let’s review how to prevent and respond to heat emergencies.
