HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -  Excessive heat in the area has volunteers with CASA of Madison County working hard to keep the elderly and homebound cool.

Executive Director Ann Anderson said her employees are making calls to the community to make sure everyone has a plan to deal with the heat. She said it is important for family members and neighbors to look out for one another.

“We remind families and friends to check on their neighbors and their family and their loved ones,” said Anderson. “Seniors can be very independent and you wouldn’t know that something is wrong. You have to reach out to them and tell them you’re concerned and you care about them.”
