Hot Weather Tips

Hot Weather Tips

www.brooklinema.gov/health 617-730-2300

Tips for Preventing Heat Related Illnesses:

•NEVER leave any person or pet alone in a closed, parked vehicle.
•Slow down, avoid strenuous activity.
•Avoid too much sun.
•Plan outdoor games and activities for early morning or evening.
•Avoid extreme temperature changes.
•Stay indoors as much as possible and use air conditioners to cool the air. When the temperature is in the high 90’s, fans will not prevent heat related illness. Taking a cool shower or bath is a better way to cool off.
•Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing that will cover as much skin as possible.
•Protect face and head by wearing a wide brimmed hat.
•Drink plenty of fluids, even if you do not feel thirsty, and avoid alcoholic beverages, drinks with caffeine and large amounts of sugar—these actually cause you to lose more body fluid.
•Use your stove less and try to cook your meals in the cooler part of the day.
•Although any one at any time can suffer from heat-related illness, some people are at greater risk than others. Check regularly on:
    Infants and young children
    People aged 65 or older
    People who have a mental illness
    Those who are physically ill, especially with heart disease or high blood pressure
•Visit adults at risk at least twice a day and closely watch them for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Infants and young children, of course, need much more frequent watching.
•KEEP COOL—Spend as much time as you can in cooler surroundings.
