June 15 is the first day of monsoon season in Arizona. Here are some tips to keep your home and family safe during a storm:

  • Trim heavy branches and landscape that may fall and cause damage in high winds.
  • Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage.
  • Clear curbs and gutters so storm water can flow freely away from your home.
  • Stay indoors during electrical storms and keep away from the windows.
  • Keep fresh batteries and flashlights handy.
  • Don't go around barricades or enter flooded washes and streets.

Get Off the Couch Teen Fitness Program

Posted on June 14, 2018 at 3:09 PM by Adam Rosen

The Off the Couch (OTC) Fitness Challenge program provides teens the chance to access fitness equipment and classes that promote an overall healthier lifestyle, while simultaneously developing individual goals. To measure a teen’s growth, pre-assessments are conducted, as well as weekly challenges on the OTC fitness course. Once milestones are reached, the participants will have the chance to win rewards, such as a trip to Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course. Since healthy eating is not the easiest thing to do as a teen, monthly cooking classes consisting of simple recipes, as well as assisting in the community garden, will be offered as a part of this experience.
