Sweltering Summer Safety

8/10/2022 (Permalink)

The summer heat is not letting up and it’s necessary to remember safety tips for excessive heat. Heat affects all people, 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. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), all are signed to look out for; particularly, as 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 a cold bath. Extreme heat is a serious danger.

For more information on preparedness and prevention, visit the CDC website or read the ready.gov flyer for extreme heat preparedness.
