Summer Health Tips

Extreme Heat Safety

  • Stay out of the direct sun. Seek shaded or air conditioned areas such as libraries or malls.

  • Wear light-colored, light-weight clothing. Use hats with brims and sunscreen for more protection.

  • Drink plenty of fluids. (Avoid alcohol and caffeine.)

  • Whenever possible, schedule outdoor events (public gatherings, sporting events) early in the morning when it's cooler and the air quality is better.

  • The elderly, small children, and people with chronic health conditions are more vulnerable to the heat. Call and check on friends, family, and neighbors.

  • Signs of dehydration include being thirsty, dry mouth, feeling tired, dizziness, headache, dry skin, dark yellow urine.

  • Anyone showing signs of heat stroke (altered mental state, not sweating, nausea) should seek medical attention immediately.

  • Reapply sunscreen after swimming or sweating or after staying outside for more than two hours.

  • Wear clothing, sunglasses, and a hat with a wide brim to protect exposed skin.

  • Seek shade, especially during midday hours.

  • Drink plenty of fluids.
