The Department of Public Health wants you to stay safe during the upcoming summer heat.
Follow these tips during extreme heat.
Plan outdoor activities during cooler parts of the day, early morning and late evening.
Drink plenty of water, even if not thirsty. Avoid caffeinated and alcoholic beverages. Caffeine dehydrates our bodies.
Always protect your eyes, face and skin. Wear sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunscreen. Make sure to reapply sunscreen as recommended by manufacturer.
Dress in loose-fitting, lightweight and light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays.
Take breaks in a cool place or under some shade.
NEVER leave kids or pets unattended in cars.
Build an emergency kit and prepare a family communications plan. Below is a checklist for your kit:
□ Three day supply of water for every person and pet in your household
□ Three day supply of non-perishable foods and a can opener
□ Battery powered radio to listen to weather forecasts
□ Flashlight and extra batteries
□ Extra supply of medications
□ Personal sanitation items (moist towelettes, plastics bags, etc.)
Check windows, doors, and air-conditioning ducts for proper insulation. Applying weather stripping to any gaps will keep cool air inside.
Cover windows that receive morning or afternoon sun with drapes, shades, awnings, or louvers. Did you know that outdoor awnings or louvers can reduce the heat that enters a home by up to 80%?
Install temporary window reflectors (for use between windows and drapes), such as aluminum foil-covered cardboard, to reflect heat back outside.
Be a buddy! 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.
Get trained in first aid to learn how to treat heat-related emergencies.
