* IMPACTS…Hot temperatures will significantly increase the potential for heat related illness. Those without access to adequate air conditioning and hydration will be most at risk. More weather updates at:
Please remember NEVER leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles. It is best to leave your pets at home if you cannot take them in with you. Even in cool temperatures, cars can heat up to dangerous temperatures very quickly. Even with the windows cracked open, interior temperatures can rise almost 20 degrees Fahrenheit above outside temperatures within the first 10 minutes. Anyone left inside is at risk for serious heat-related illnesses or even death. Children who are left unattended in parked cars are at greatest risk for heat stroke, and possibly death.
When traveling with children, remember to do the following:
o   Never leave infants, children or pets in a parked car, even if the windows are cracked open. To remind yourself that a child is in the car, keep a stuffed animal in the car seat. When the child is buckled in, place the stuffed animal in the front with the driver.
o   When leaving your car, check to be sure everyone is out of the car. Do not overlook any children who have fallen asleep in the car.
Check on family, friends, and neighbors who do not have air conditioning and who spend much of their time alone.

CC Fire Authority Report on 6/2/2017 Fire

Copper Canyon Fire Authority Called Out for Urban Interface
On 06/02/2017 at 20:24 hrs. Copper Canyon Fire and Medical Authority from St 81 and St 82 was dispatched to a residential fire in the area of East LaMarcia Dr. and Salt Mine Rd. Initial reports stated that the reporting party saw a fire in the yard of a residence across from LaMarcia Dr. on the south side of Salt Mine Rd that had spread to a structure. Upon arrival of emergency crews, it was found that there was an RV camp trailer  on the south side of Salt Mine Rd fully involved with fire spreading to  approximately 1 acre of thick grass and brush. The RV was occupied at the time. The resident was able to evacuate the property without incident or injury.
With heavy winds from the south, fire embers were blown across Salt Mine Rd into the Verde Club Estates neighborhood igniting brush fires throughout the neighborhood. Multiple structures were threatened at this time. Initial responding units were deployed into the Verde Club Estates neighborhood for structure protection and fire extinguishment. At this time multiple resources were ordered  from throughout the Verde Valley. Mutual aid resources and responses came for Verde Valley Fire, Sedona Fire, Coconino National Forest Service, Prescott National Forest Service, Verde Valley Ambulance Company, Cottonwood Fire, Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority and YCSO. In all, there was
approximately 30 firefighters battling this blaze.
A mandatory evacuation was in place for several blocks in the Verde Lake Club Estates neighborhood, which was handled by YCSO along with traffic control.  Fire crews made quick work in controlling and extinguishing this fire and saving multiple homes in the area. No homes or structures sustained damaged or were lost during the incident with the exception of the RV camp Trailer. Residents that were evacuated during the incident were allowed back into their homes after approximately 2 hrs. In all approximately 2.5 acres were burned.
Copper Canyon Fire and Medical would like to extend a sincere thanks to all the agencies involved who helped to protect the citizens in our community and their homes during this incident.
