Another hot day is in store across the region with heat indices climbing well into the 90s across much of the area, and over 100 near Chattanooga. Practice heat safety - drink plenty of water and take frequent breaks in the shade.
This is to help spread awareness about the dangers of leaving a child, and even a pet, in a closed vehicle during a warm sunny day. Please spread the word: Beat the Heat, Check the Back Seat !!!
Practice Heat Safety. Stay hydrated and take frequent breaks in the shade as often as possible.
With temperatures hot today, know the symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke! Make sure you drink plenty of water and limit outdoor activity during the warmest part of the day.
