SUMMERTIME IS ON THE WAY!
As summer approaches, the Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office would like to remind everyone to drive cautiously as children will be out playing, riding bikes, and enjoying the summer weather.
Summer weather means higher temperatures, so remember these tips to beat the heat:
- Take frequent water breaks
- Apply sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher
- Never leave children or pets unattended in a vehicle
- Seek medical attention immediately at the first signs of a heat related illness
We would also like to remind everyone traveling in a vehicle to always wear their seat belt - seat belt usage is the law, but is also the most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes. Don't drink and drive - instead, call on a designated driver to get you home safely.
