Time to Prepare

With all the rain and storms that have been recently occurring throughout the United States, it seems counter intuitive to discuss drought info.  But this month, FEMA has created information for us to consider and what to be aware of concerning heat and drought.

Although, we may not have to deal with water restrictions, we need to be prepared for the heat and all that can come with it.  Learn what to do in the heat and how to conserve water - our precious resource.
