Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is reminding residents to take precautions during the hot weather forecast for this week.
Walsh has not declared a heat emergency, but could do so after temperatures have reached 90 degrees or higher for three or more consecutive days.
During a heat emergency, cooling centers will be open across the city.
Adults and children are urged to use sunscreen containing an SPF 15 or higher. Children and pets should never be left alone in vehicles, even for short periods of time.
