Summer Safety Tips: Handling the Heat

  • Stay indoors in air conditioning as much as possible.

  • If you do go outside stay in the shade.

  •  If your home is not air conditioned, spend at least two hours daily at an air conditioned mall, library or other public place.

  •  Wear sunscreen outside, along with loose fitting light colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible.

  •  Drink water regularly even if you are not thirsty. Limit alcohol, and sugary drinks which speeds dehydration.

  •  Never leave children or pets alone in the car.

  • Avoid exertion during the hottest part of the day.

  • Take a cool shower or bath.

  • Be a good neighbor, check on elderly and people with disabilities in your community who may need assistance keeping cool.
