Summer’s scorching weather can be a killer. Some people are more at risk of developing a heat-related illness; including, but not limited to, adults age 65 and older, those with chronic medical conditions, people who work outside, infants, children and athletes. Here are some tips to help keep you safe this summer!
- Install central air conditioning or window air conditioners.
- Use shade and awnings to prevent extreme heat from coming inside
- Stay indoors and limit sun exposure
- If you don’t have AC, visit someplace that does – such as a mall, theater, or library
- If work needs to be done outdoors, do so in the early mornings or late evenings. After all, it is summer so the sun is out past 8 !
- Dress in loose fitting clothes
- Make sure you, friends, family and pets stay hydrated!
- Wear wide-brimmed hat and sun screen to protect your neck and face
- Never keep children or pets unattended in a vehicle.
Remember : Proper preparation prevents poor performance
