Heat Advisory tips

Due to the excessive heat this week, please read the following to stay safe and healthy.

·

·  Be aware of both the temperature and the heat index. The heat index is the temperature the body feels when the effects of heat and humidity are combined.

·  Discuss heat safety precautions with members of your household. Have a plan for wherever you spend time— home, work and school—and prepare for power outages.

·  Check the contents of your emergency disaster kit in case a power outage occurs.

·  Know those in your neighborhood who are elderly, young, sick or overweight. They are more likely to become victims of excessive heat and may need help.

·  If you do not have air conditioning, choose places you could go to for relief from the heat during the warmest part of the day.

·  Be aware that people living in urban areas may be at greater risk from the effects of a prolonged heat wave than are people living in rural areas.

·  Get trained in First Aid to learn how to treat heat-related emergencies.

·  Ensure that your animals' needs for water and shade are met.

·  Never leave children or pets alone in enclosed vehicles.

·  Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol.

·  Eat small meals and eat more often.

·  Avoid extreme temperature changes.

·  Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays.

·  Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day.

·  Postpone outdoor games and activities.

·  Use a buddy system when working in excessive heat.

·  Take frequent breaks if you must work outdoors.

·  Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, who spend much of their time alone or who are more likely to be affected by the heat.

·  Check on your animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat.
