Heat: During

Stay Cool 

Keep your body temperature cool to avoid heat-related illness

  • Stay in air-conditioned buildings as much as possible. Man invented air conditioning for a reason, enjoy it!  If you don't have air-conditioning or its not working well, consider going somewhere else that does. 
  • Do not rely on a fan as your primary cooling device.
  • Avoid direct sunlight.
  • Take cool showers or baths. 
  • Check on those most at-risk twice a day. 

Stay Hydrated 

Because your body loses fluids through sweat, you can become dehydrated during times of extreme heat

  • Drink more water than usual
  • Don't wait until you feel thirsty to drink more fluids
  • Drink from two to four cups of water every hour while working or exercising outside
  • Avoid alcohol or liquids containing high amounts of sugar or caffeine
  • Remind others to drink enough water
