Heat Related Emergencies (Beat the Heat!)
Email Email Print Print PDF PDF RSS RSS Facebook Google+ Twitter

By Lieutenant Scott Maurice
June 18, 2018

With the heat beating down on us for the next few days, here are some simple ways you can prevent heat emergencies.

* Dress for the heat. Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing.
* Drink water! D rink water even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid alcohol & caffeine
* Eat small meals and eat more often.
* Slow down. Avoid strenuous activity. If you must, do it early!
* Stay indoors when possible. If AC is not available, stay on the lowest floor out of the sunshine.
* Be a good neighbor. Check on elderly residents & those without AC.
