Keep Cool and Prevent Heat Stroke
As the temperatures heat up over the next several days, you're reminded to protect yourself from heat stroke. Stay hydrated by drinking water, wear a hat and limit your time in the sun. Symptoms of heat stroke or heat exhaustion include high body temperature, lack of sweat, confusion, fainting, and unconsciousness. Extra precautions should be taken during the heat wave by children, seniors, and anyone with pre-existing lung, heart, kidney, nervous system, mental health or diabetic conditions, outdoor workers, as well as those who are socially isolated.
