Beat the heat and be safe: Hot weather safety and fire prevention tips

Beat the heat and be safe: Hot weather safety and fire prevention tips

With the projected warmer weather this week, the City of Salem reminds everyone that additional steps should be taken to maintain health and prevent fires. High heat can impact the health of people and pets. Also, due to increased temperatures and lower fuel moistures, the risk of fire ignition and fire spread is magnified.
