Heat Arrives; Precautions Urged

With hot temperatures forecast this week with the potential to reach triple digits, health officials are reminding people to take precautions to avoid heat-related illnesses.  When possible, stay in air-conditioned buildings, limit outdoor activity particularly in the hottest part of the day, avoid direct sunlight, wear loose, lightweight, light colored clothing, and take cool showers or baths.  Drink more water than usual, don’t wait until you are thirsty to drink, and avoid alcohol or liquids containing high amounts of sugar.  Also, check on at-risk friends, family, and neighbors periodically through the day.
