The heat turned up this past week, with many areas seeing at or above 100 degrees. Forecasts show it will still be in the 90s over the weekend, so if you're looking to spend time on the lake, hit a few rounds of golf or explore some of the area trails, the Lakeway Police Department wants you to keep safety in mind.
If you're hitting the lake for instance, make sure to wear a life jacket. Don't go on the lake by yourself unless you notify a friend or family member, keeping them updated on your whereabouts and when you expect to return.
The hot weather means you should stay hydrated on the local trails. Don't forget to always check the backseat to ensure everyone is out of the car when you leave the vehicle, and keep an eye on your pets. Make sure they have a shaded, cool place to retreat.
