As it gets wamer, snakes are more active and are something to be aware of.
As summer approaches, rattlesnakes and other desert animals are making their way out of hiding and into the warm weather. Fire districts are actively educating the residents about prevention and safety.
If residents encounter a rattlesnake they are advised to leave it alone. If bitten, a person is given between 10 and 15 anti-venom vials - each of those costing between $2,000 and $5,000.
