Just because cooler high temperatures are present in the Valley with the arrival of fall, Phoenix Fire Department is advising hikers not to let those conditions fool them into a false sense of security.
Fire Captain Danny Gile said even with high temperatures only in the 90s, hiker rescues increase.
"We start to see our out-of-town visitors starting to come down in the next month or two," he said. "Some are here early. But 90 [degrees] can still zap you, especially if you’ve done a good job avoiding most of the heat for most of the summer."
There were at least two hikers rescued Saturday. One was a young boy wearing inadequate footwear.
