Take Precautions to Prevent Heat-Related Illness
- Ensure that you have ample water on hand. If you plan to be camping or at outdoor events, make an effort to find shade and pack extra water
- Stay cool indoors in air-conditioned facilities, especially during the hottest part of the day. Residents who do not have adequate air conditioning should find a friend or relative to stay with during the hottest parts of the day, or another location where air conditioning is available such as a public building, shopping center, restaurant or movie theater
- Pace yourself and avoid heavy exertion in the heat
- Wear lightweight, loose fitting clothing, a broad-brimmed hat and sunscreen
- Avoid hot foods and heavy meals
- Alcohol and caffeinated drinks can increase dehydration
- If you become lightheaded, feel confused or experience any other symptoms of heat exhaustion, get to a cool area until you feel better
- Never leave a person or animal in a parked car; temperatures inside a vehicle can rise to dangerous levels in minutes
- Don’t forget pets and livestock, they need extra water and shade
- Check on neighbors who may need assistance
