City splash pads are open for use and it is highly recommended to follow heat preparedness guidelines and safety tips listed below.

Call 911 for any heat-related emergency. Heatwaves can produce many heat-related health issues, and this can happen quickly to those with underlying medical conditions, elderly, children and pets too!
