Notice body

new community service campaign to inform the public about the dangers of heat-related issues has been launched by the Auburn University Staff Council.

“Beat the Heat, Check the Back Seat” is the brainchild of College of Veterinary Medicine employees Hollie Lee and Sharron Barney, who serve on the Auburn University Staff Council’s Health and Wellness Committee.

Through their work and that of members of Auburn University’s Staff Council, the group has the support of university and community officials and has received a small grant from the university’s Concessions Board. They have launched a Facebook Page, “Beat the Heat Check the Backseat,” and have printed vehicle decals to remind people of the serious issue.

The decals will be available at the Auburn and Opelika Chambers of Commerce and the Auburn University Bookstore.
