SUMMER HEAT

HEAT WAVE SAFETY TIPS:

SLOW DOWN – Strenuous activities should be reduced, eliminated or rescheduled to the coolest time of the day.

DRESS FOR SUMMER – Lightweight, light-colored clothing reflects heat and sunlight and helps your body maintain normal temperatures. Wear a wide rimmed hat to protect your face and head.

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER OR OTHER NON-ALCOHOLIC FLUIDS – Drink plenty of fluids even if you don’t feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine because they increase water loss through urination. Alcohol drinks dehydrate.

SPEND MORE TIME IN AIR CONDITIONED PLACES – Spend some time each day in an air-conditioned home or building.

DON’T GET TOO MUCH SUN – Sunburn makes the job of heat dissipation that much more difficult

CHECK ON THE ELDERLY, INFANTS, YOUNG CHILDREN AND PEOPLE WITH CHRONIC HEALTH PROBLEMS OR DISABILITIES – They are more vulnerable to the effects of the heat

KEEP PETS IN DOORS – If not able to keep pets indoors, provide them with shade and plenty of cool water. Refill their water bowls frequently. DO NOT leave pets, or anyone else, in a closed, parked vehicle.

 

HEAT DISORDERS:

SUNBURN – The symptoms of sunburn include redness to the skin and pain.

HEAT CRAMPS – Muscular pain and spasms due to heavy exertion.

HEAT EXHAUSTION – Sweat does not evaporate, due to high humidity or layers of clothing, so the body is not cooled properly.

HEAT STROKE – The victims temperature control system, which produces sweating to cool the body, stops working.
