The Heat is on – Be safe!

Heat related deaths and illnesses are preventable. Staying cool and making simple changes in fluid intake, activities and clothing during hot weather will help keep you safe and healthy.  Young children and seniors over 65 are at highest risk for heat stroke.  Try these tips to stay cool:

  • Stay in air-conditioned buildings as much as possible
  • Monitor or limit outdoor activities
  • Drink more water than usual, don’t wait until you are thirsty
  • Wear loose, light-weight/light-colored clothing
  • Know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke
  • Don’t forget pets – give them a shady spot and plenty of water

The best defense against heat-related problems is prevention.  Be informed.  Be safe.

In good health,

 

Kathy Luhn, Health Commissioner
