With temperatures expected to climb into the triple digits this weekend, officials are offering tips on how to beat the heat and prevent any heat-related illnesses.
Heat is one of the leading weather-related killers in the United States, resulting in hundreds of fatalities each year and even more heat-related illnesses. Remember these tips in preparation for a long, hot summer.
– Stay hydrated: Hydrate with water and avoid sugary beverages.
– Stay cool: Keep cool in an air conditioned area.
– Stay covered: Wear fitting and light clothes. Don’t forget your hat and sunscreen.
– Slow down: Reduce, eliminate or reschedule strenuous activities until the coolest time of the day.
– Children, seniors and anyone with health problems should stay in the coolest available place, not necessarily indoors.
Check on those at risk: Check on older, sick, or frail people who may need help responding to the heat.
Look before you lock: Keep your children and pets safe during heat waves. Always look before you lock your vehicle.
