Here are some helpful tips to stay safe in the heat:
- Drink lots of water and wear loose-knit clothing.
- Check up on relatives and neighbors, especially if they have pre-existing health conditions or are sensitive to heat. Let them know the heat is coming and the ways to stay safe.
- Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.
- Take extra precautions if you work, exercise, or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening, or until this period of extreme heat is over.
- Know the difference between heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Heat stroke is a life-threatening emergency. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location, and then immediately call 911.
