Yes the heat is on. It's time to move a little slower, drink more water and make sure you don't get over heated.

 You may want to check on the elderly to make sure they are staying cool.

 Birmingham Police Officers are checking in on elderly people and people who might not have air conditioning.

Patrol Officers stopped by people's homes along their beats to make sure they are ok.

 It's called: "Operation Welfare Check".

Again if you can here's a reminder to check on your friends and family who might be in need of help staying cool.

Also a reminder to keep pets watered if they are outside.
