Summer is upon us, and the temperatures are rising quickly! We have been responding to multiple calls for heat related illness, which means that it is a good time to talk about how to avoid heat exhaustion and heat stroke! Staying hydrated with water or sports drinks, replenishing electrolytes, taking frequent breaks, and wearing light colored clothing and hats can all help to keep cool and prevent heat related illness.
We are also pleased to announce that the COVID related restrictions have been relaxing a little, so we are out and about doing public education events again! We also have implemented an externship program with the CSI Fire Science program, so if you see a student with us wearing a bright red shirt, they are learning all about what it takes to work for the TFFD. That’s all for now, and until next month… Stay safe!
