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

By Lieutenant Scott Maurice
June 28, 2020

With the heat and humidity beating down on us, here are some simple ways you can prevent heat emergencies.

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