Summer Safety from Heat

Community Summer Safety from Heat Stay safe in the heat.

Summer is here and it’s time to take extra safety precautions for the coming months. Heat affects all people, but especially the young, elderly, and sick.

If you must go out outside in the heat, wear loose fitting, light colored clothing, and apply sunscreen.

Avoid leaving children or animals in parked cars.  Temperatures can become deadly in a matter of minutes.

Be aware of heat exhaustion signs such as heavy sweating; weakness; cold pale and clammy skin; nausea or vomiting; and fainting are all signs according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Heat exhaustion can lead to heat stroke, which is life threatening. Signs of heat stroke are a high body temperature (103°+), rapid and strong pulse, and possible unconsciousness. If you think someone may have heatstroke, call 911 and move them somewhere cooler. Try to reduce the body temperatures with cool, wet cloths or bath. Extreme heat is a serious danger.
