Safety Tips During Extreme Heat
Stay indoors and avoid extreme temperature changes.
If air conditioning is not available, stay on the lowest floor out of the sunshine.
Keep your electric fans running.
Drink fluids - particularly water or juice - often, even if you do not feel thirsty. This will help your body's thermostat stay cool.
Eat small, frequent meals.
Keep pets indoors and refill their water bowls frequently.
Do not leave children or pets in an enclosed vehicle.
Be Safe in the Sun - Safety tips from the American Academy of Dermatology
Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun Protection Factor (
) of at least 15.
Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours when outdoors, even on cloudy days.
Wear protective, tightly woven clothing, such as a long-sleeve shirt and pants.
Wear wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses when outdoors.
Stay in the shade whenever possible.
Avoid reflective surfaces, which can reflect up to 85% of the sun's damaging rays.
Protect children. Minimize sun exposure and apply sunscreen to children aged 6 months and older.
No shadow? Seek the shade! If your shadow is shorter than you are, you're likely to sunburn.
Avoid tanning beds.
