Hot! Hot! Hot!

Summer time in Michigan brings a variety of weather. This year is no different. Dangerously high temperatures have plagued our state for most of July and there is no end in sight. Normally when we think about summer weather dangers we think about thunderstorms, tornadoes, high winds or hail. Most families do not contemplate the dangers of high temperatures or the life threatening dangers they present.

Heat is one of the leading weather related killers according OSHA. According to the CDC during extremely hot and humid weather, like we are currently experiencing in Michigan, your body's ability to cool itself is challenged. Rapidly rising body temperatures put you at risk for a heat related illness. That being said it is important to note a child or pet should never be locked in a car with the windows up. A child can die within 10 minutes. A staggering number of deaths have already been reported in 2020 by the CDC. For more heat related information please check out the National Weather Service's site on heat safety at https://www.weather.gov/safety/heat.

We here at SERVPRO of Marine City/Romeo hope everyone is safely enjoying the hot summer weather.
