Extreme temperatures were forecast beginning Tuesday, July 19, and continuing through the week, and the town has issued safety tips.

In a news announcement, the town says extreme heat is defined as three or more days over 90 degrees.

In addition to cooling off at Arlington Reservoir or the North Union Spray Park, the town says you can also take the summer reading challenge at the Fox or Robbins library.

Whatever you do, town officials recommend residents be careful during extended periods of extreme heat. 

Read additional safety tips at arlingtonma.gov and stay cool and safe this week and all summer.
 
Do not leave pets in hot cars: Town officials remind you that animals do not always fare well in the heat, especially when trapped inside of a heat magnet, such as your car. Please don’t leave pets in cars. And, of course, the same goes for people, especially children, senior citizens and people who may be ill or disabled.

Please water new street trees: Prolonged hot weather can stress trees, especially trees in their first few years of growth. Please make sure new trees on your street have enough water by filling the green bags at the tree base.

If there is no green bag apply a slow-watering method from a hose to the tree. With your help, they can provide decades of shade.

The DPW and the Arlington Tree Committee thank you in advance for helping these young trees to maturity. View a flier on how to do this at arlingtonma.gov/trees >>
