City-of-Moscow-Logo

June 25, 2021 (Moscow, Idaho) —  Due to record high temperatures forecasted for the coming week, the Hamilton Indoor Recreation Center, 1724 E ‘F’ St, will be open for extended hours to provide a cooling station for the community.  Hours for Sat. and Sun. will be 12 to 10 pm.  Weekday hours are from 8 am to 10 pm.

The City also cautions everyone to be aware of vehicle temperatures in hot weather.  At 95° outside, vehicle temperatures can reach 114° in 10 mins and 129° in 30 mins.  Vehicle temperatures rise exponentially when there is an increase in outdoor temperatures, even with the windows left open.

 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) includes reminders for vehicle safety in high temperatures:

  • While anyone left in a parked car is at risk, children are especially at risk of getting a heat stroke or dying. When traveling with children, remember to do the following:
  • 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.
  • 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.

Pets in hot weather also need attention.  These tips for pets from the Human Society of the Palouse, highlight how to determine the symptoms of overheating in pets and good pet care in hot temperatures:

  • Excessive panting, difficulty breathing, increased heart and respiratory rate, drooling, mild weakness, stupor or even collapse. Symptoms can also include seizures, bloody diarrhea and vomit along with an elevated body temperature of over 104 degrees.
  • Some pets have a greater risk of heatstroke. Those pets with flat faces, overweight, senior, or any organ damage or disease are at higher risk.
  • If you fear your pet is suffering from heatstroke call your veterinarian immediately!
  • Feel free to trim longer hair on your dog, but do not shave your dog as the layers of dogs’ coats protect them from overheating and sunburn.
  • Brushing cats more often than usual can prevent problems caused by excessive heat.
  • Be sure that any sunscreen or insect repellent product you use on your pets is labeled specifically for use on animals.
  • Keep walks during these times to a minimum.
  • When the temperature is very high, don’t let your dog linger on hot asphalt. Being so close to the ground, your pooch’s body can heat up quickly, and sensitive paw pads can burn.
