Safety Tips to follow for High Temperatures

Never Leave Children, Disabled Adults or Pets in Parked Vehicles

Hyperthermia is an acute condition that occurs when the body absorbs more heat than it can handle. Temperature inside a parked vehicle can rapidly rise to a dangerous level for children, pets and even adults.

Reduce, eliminate or reschedule strenuous activities until the coolest time of the day. Children, seniors and anyone with health problems should stay in the coolest available place, not necessarily indoors.

Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing to reflect heat and sunlight.

Drink plenty of water, non-alcoholic and decaffeinated fluids. Your body needs water to keep cool. Drink plenty of fluids even if you don't feel thirsty. Stay away from Energy drinks, they are high in caffeine.
