Boy Scouts help people find water in the summer heat

It's the middle of summer, and it's a rough time to be on the streets looking for shelter and water. Some local Boy Scouts are trying to make finding those resources a lot easier.

If you're traveling by bus or light rail, you might see some Eagle Scouts handing out maps. On those maps are directions to a nearby cooling station.

"We brought out a bunch of volunteers and what we are doing is passing out these maps that cover the Maricopa County. What it does is it points out hydration stations and cooling stations where people can get free water and cool off," said Kaden Heywood.

Heywood helped organize the event in hopes of receiving an Eagle Scout badge. But more importantly, he wants people to know where they can get help.

"We're trying to get the word out where these places are. A lot of people don't know where to get free water around here, and that's really important in these temperatures," said Heywood.

Water stations will be up and running for the next couple of months.

"Once you get into the 109, 110 physically that's taxing. It's very difficult for the body to cool yourself unless you can change your environment," said Dr. Kevin Kalkbrenner.

The boys will be handing out maps for the next two days to get the word out. They will be at the Desert Sky transit center from 6:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and the Ed Pastor transit center on Thursday.
