AZ Scouts erect Heat Can Kill trailhead signs

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

In July of 2016 on a 110-degree day, 12-year-old Cody Flom was hiking with his mother's boyfriend on the trail when Cody collapsed. He later died at the hospital.

"We just finished installing it this morning and we're just dedicating it to Cody Flom," said Matthew Harwood, a boy scout and a friend of Cody's, teamed up with the city of Phoenix to install the warning signs.

"We don't want something like that to happen again so this sign is being installed to specifically warn hikers about the dangers. It's not a static sign, it actually changes with the weather to let people know how dangerous it is," Hardwood said.
