Tips for Staying Safe in Hot Weather

Hot weather can be dangerous, especially for young children, older adults, and people with chronic health conditions. Here are some tips for staying safe in hot weather:

  • Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids, even if you don’t feel thirsty. Water is the best choice, but you can also drink sports drinks or other fluids that contain electrolytes.
  • Avoid strenuous activity during the hottest part of the day. This is usually between 10am and 4pm. If you must exercise during this time, do so in the shade or indoors.
  • Wear loose-fitting, light-colored clothing. This will help your body stay cool. Avoid wearing dark colors or clothing that is made from thick materials.
  • Take frequent breaks in the shade or indoors. If you start to feel hot, dizzy, or nauseous, stop what you are doing and cool down.
  • Pay attention to the signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Heat exhaustion is a milder form of heat illness that can lead to heat stroke if it is not treated. Symptoms of heat exhaustion include:
    • Heavy sweating
    • Cool, clammy skin
    • Fainting
    • Headache
    • Nausea
    • Dizziness
  • Heat stroke is a more serious heat illness that can be life-threatening. Symptoms of heat stroke include:
    • A high body temperature (above 103°F)
    • Hot, dry skin
    • Confusion
    • Seizures
    • Passing out
  • If you experience any of the symptoms of heat exhaustion or heat stroke, seek medical attention immediately.

Here are some additional tips for staying safe in hot weather:

  • Keep your pets cool and hydrated.
  • Avoid leaving children or pets in hot cars.
  • If you are working outdoors, take frequent breaks in the shade or indoors.
  • Wet your skin with a cool cloth or take a cool shower or bath.
  • Use a fan or air conditioner to stay cool.
  • If you are going to be outside for an extended period of time, apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and reapply every two hours.

By following these tips, you can stay safe and healthy in hot weather.
