To minimize the effects of extreme heat, here are some vital tips to keep in mind!

Dress appropriately in loose-fitting, lightweight, and light-colored attire during exceptionally hot weather. Dark colors tend to absorb the sun’s rays, so it’s best to avoid them.

Frequently check on your pets to ensure their safety during periods of extreme heat.

Limit vigorous activities during the hottest parts of the day (from 11 am to 2 pm) and consider using the buddy system for added safety.

Regularly check on seniors, individuals with illnesses, or those who may require additional assistance.

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water to prevent dehydration, heat stroke, and related health issues.

Never leave children or pets unattended in a vehicle, irrespective of the reason.

Be aware of the symptoms of dehydration and heat stroke. If someone is experiencing these conditions, act swiftly!
