Plenty of people were enjoying the outdoors Saturday afternoon, but a heat wave this weekend has caused some concern.
Runners and tennis players Saturday didn't seem to be too bothered by the heat, but members of the Charlottesville-Albemarle Rescue Squad want everyone who chooses to be outside to keep in mind some tips on how to stay safe in the sun.
With temperature rising this weekend, rescue squad officials want people spending the day outside to keep a few safety tips in mind.
"Stay hydrated. Hydration is the number one key, you wanna drink a lot of water, not so much soda or juices, but a lot of water. Wear loose fitted clothing and light colors," said Cindy Garrett of CARS.
City officials are reminding residents to keep themselves and their family members monitored if they're out in the sun.
Temperatures have surged this weekend and should reach the mid to upper-90s this week.
