Summer Temperatures Are Here—How Hot Will Your Area Get?
Wednesday, June 15, 2016 6:35 AM

From Our Friends at Agility Recovery

Record high temperatures, some rising up into triple digits, are arriving in much of the country this week, prompting warnings and reminders on how to stay safe.

While we all understand the importance of staying cool and hydrated, here are a few other tips to make sure everyone stays safe this weekend and throughout the warmer months ahead.

  • Check on family, friends, and elderly 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.
  • Know the signs of heat exhaustion: cool, moist, pale or flushed skin. Heavy sweating, headache and nausea.
  • Check on animals frequently. Make sure they have plenty of shade and cool water and consider moving them inside.
  • Call 911 immediately if someone exhibits signs of heat stroke, including hot, red skin, which may be dry or moist; changes in consciousness; vomiting and high body temperature.

For more information, review these tips from the American Red Cross.
