Beat the Heat with a few Safety Tips:
As we are experiencing high heat indexes and heat advisories this week be sure to take extra safety precautions when outside by minimizing your sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. When possible, reschedule strenuous outdoor activities to the early morning or evening. Otherwise, seek shade, wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing, a hat,
and sunglasses, use sunscreen, and drink plenty of water.
During hot and humid weather, your body's ability to cool itself is challenged. When your body heats too rapidly to cool itself properly, or when too much fluid or salt is lost through dehydration or sweating, you may experience a heat-related illness.
