We are two days away from Monday, August 21, 2017, aka: “The Great American Eclipse.” It will be the first time in 99 years that the eclipse has crossed the country from the Pacific to the Atlantic. In Arizona, we will see a partial eclipse, with 70% of the sun being covered at its peak. The eclipse will begin about 9am and end around 11am, with 10:35 am being the best time to be outside to see it.

If you plan on witnessing this amazing event, we want you to be safe. Never stare directly into the sun, even if it’s partially covered, as it can cause severe damage to the eyes. The ONLY way to look directly at the sun is through solar filters that meet the worldwide standard known as ISO 12312-2. Never look at the the eclipsed or partially eclipsed sun through a camera, telescope, binoculars or other similar devices, even if you are wearing eclipse glasses. The intensity of the solar rays through the devices will damage the device, the solar filter and most importantly, your eyes.

Camp Verde Open House Postponed

Dear Community Member,

Due to the poor air quality in Camp Verde as well as limitations to travel ability, and out of respect for the many first responder crews and other support assisting with the Goodwin fire, Spectrum will be canceling it’s Camp Verde Open House scheduled for tomorrow, June 29, 2017.

Our hearts and thoughts are with all of the people being evacuated from their homes and the many different first responders and law enforcement crews that are working to contain the fire and protect the public’s safety.

We apologize for the short notice and will communicate the rescheduled day and time at a later date.

Thank you for your understanding!

April Razo, LAMFT

To say, “It’s a little hot in Arizona right now,” is an understatement. It’s not just a little hot–it’s A LOT hot. It’s a feeling-the-full-force-of-the-sun kind of hot; a sweltering heat that starts early in the day and  remains even after the sun has gone to bed.

With the extra hot days of Summer, it’s more important than ever to take the necessary steps to avoid the complications that hot weather brings.  Without the proper safety precautions, extreme heat can bring a whole host of problems.

To stay safe, follow these hot weather tips:

  • Hot cars can be deadly. Even at a cool 70 degrees outside, the interior of a vehicle on a sunny day can easily reach 104 degrees. Never leave children or pets inside your vehicle.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Stay inside as much as possible and avoid strenuous activity, especially during the hottest part of the day. If you must be outdoors, take frequent breaks.
  • Check in on family, friends or neighbors who live alone and who may be affected by the heat.
  • Remember your pets to be sure they aren’t suffering from the effects of heat. Be sure to provide them with plenty of shade and cool water.
  • If someone doesn’t have air conditioning, choose places to go during the hottest part of the day for relief from the heat: school, theaters, malls, libraries, etc…

If, however, the body overheats, and body temperatures rises causing muscle cramps and profuse sweating,  the risk for heat stroke is high. Heat stroke brings with it hallucinations, confusion, loss of consciousness, and eventually organ damage, coma and death if not treated quickly. If you experience any signs or symptoms of heat stroke call 911 immediately.

Stay cool, Arizona.
