Warm Weather Safety Tips
High temperatures and hot dry climate are the bread and butter for outside fires. Take precautions to prevent these by maintaining your property and reducing ignition sources by taking safety precautions during all outdoor activities.
The warmer weather usually calls for more outdoor activities like grilling, boating, swimming, camping and more. As people become more active during the warmer months, it’s important to be careful and make everyone’s safety a priority in all of these activities. Stay hydrated and make safe choices!
