"I hadn't really thought about it, it makes sense," said Parent Aaron Thomas
His Wife, Kelli Thomas also commented with "I've never really thought about the equipment but that's a good thing, especially the metal equipment."
It's something many parents don't think about, but it could potentially harm your children.
"We told the kids to try and play more over where the shade was because of the temperatures. In fact one of my little boys, he said the temperature of the equipment was so hot it made his hands burn a little bit," said Parent Rod Senecal.
We found out that with higher temperatures comes hotter equipment. We had the fire department come out and check the equipment for us and as surprising as it may sound, some of the areas got as high as 200 degrees. We learned that equipment this hot could seriously hurt a child.
"When talking 150-200 degrees, you could suffer 1st degree burns. It depends on what part of the skin is touching and how much pressure," says Sergeant Jay Gouge.
Some parents we talked to were surprised at how hot it was.
"Touching the playground equipment was unbelievably hot. It was almost like we needed to leave because it was so hot," said Mom, Hannah Dendy.
After speaking with Sergeant Gouge, he gave us a few safety tips.
He says that you should keep your children in the shaded part of the playground so they will not be playing on equipment that has been in the direct sunlight.
You should also not have you children outside during the hottest hours of the day, which are between 11 and 4 pm.
And always test the equipment where you're children are playing by touching it to make sure that it is cool enough.
