Newtown Emergency Management officials are offering some information for residents to prevent becoming victims of the heat during these continued high temperatures. Residents are encouraged to check on elderly or frail neighbors to be certain they are doing ok, and suggest they go to cooling centers if their home is overheated. People are reminded to stay hydrated and avoid strenuous outdoor work. Residents are being reminded to monitor pets, keeping them out of the sun and not left in hot cars. When the temperature outside is 85 degrees, it takes less than 10 minutes for the inside of a car to reach 100 degrees and half an hour to reach 120 degrees.
