Ways to Beat the Heat

-Drink cool, non-alcoholic beverages often. Don’t wait until you are thirsty to drink.

-Avoid unnecessary exertion.

-If you experience dizziness, fatigue, faintness, headaches, muscle cramps and increased thirst you need to relax in a cooler, shaded place and drink water or a sports drink.

-More severe symptoms (such as disorientation, pale and clammy skin, a rapid and weak pulse, and/or fast and shallow breathing) may indicate heat exhaustion or impending heat stroke. Seek immediate medical attention.

If You Must Be Outdoors

-Try to limit your activity to morning and evening hours when the temperature is cooler.

-Cut down on exercise.

-Try and rest often in shady areas.

-Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and using sunscreen.

-Wear light-weight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothes.

Groups Are at Greater Risk For Heat-Related Illnesses

-People aged 65 or older.

-Infants and young children.

-People with chronic medical conditions.

The public is being warned to never leave a senior, child or pet in a closed car or any vehicle since temperatures can quickly rise to life-threatening levels. Anyone who knows seniors who live alone or people whose immune and/or respiratory systems are not working properly, they should check on them regularly to make sure they are staying cool.
