Water everywhere as Valley temps rise

City of Peoria Library aide Terry Miranda takes care of the city’s main library patrons and also people who walk in off the street for a bottle of water. Miranda said the library has handed out 80 bottles of water since May; more than 20 last week.

Last week, the Valley saw its first extreme heat advisory of the summer. Remember to use caution as midday temperatures spike.
Stay hydrated and carry extra water in your vehicle in case you become stranded.
Never leave pets or children in a vehicle, even for a moment; temperatures rise quickly.
Take frequent breaks from the heat, and limit exercise and activities to the morning and evening hours if possible.
You can also help your community by donating water, sunscreen, hats and sunglasses. Peoria is part of a statewide network, the Heat Relief Network, providing hydration stations and emergency heat relief. Heat Relief Network locations can be found below and online at www.azmag.gov/Programs/Homelessness/Heat-Relief-Regional-Network.
