Key safety tips during extreme heat.


Ready.gov
recommends the following hot weather safety tips:

» Drink plenty of water — even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine. Persons who have epilepsy or heart, kidney, or liver disease; are on fluid-restricted diets; or have a problem with fluid retention should consult a doctor before increasing liquid intake.

» Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles.

» Check on family, friends, and neighbors who do not have air conditioning and who spend much of their time alone.

» Check on your animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat.

» Go to a designated public shelter if your home loses power during periods of extreme heat. Stay on the lowest floor out of the sunshine if air conditioning is not available.

» Check the weather/listen to NOAA Weather Radio for critical updates from the National Weather Service.

» Avoid strenuous work during the warmest part of the day. Use a buddy system when working in extreme heat, and take frequent breaks.

» Dress in loose-fitting, lightweight, and light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays.

» Protect face and head by wearing sunblock and a wide-brimmed hat.

» Postpone outdoor games and activities.

» Stay indoors as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun.

» Eat well-balanced, light, and regular meals. Avoid using salt tablets unless directed to do so by a physician.

» Limit intake of alcoholic beverages.

» Avoid extreme temperature changes.

» Consider spending the warmest part of the day in public buildings such as libraries, schools, movie theaters, shopping malls, and other community facilities. Circulating air can cool the body by increasing the perspiration rate of evaporation.

» Download the FEMA App for heat advisories and safety tips.

» Text SHELTER + your ZIP code to 43362 (4FEMA) to find the nearest shelter in your area (example: shelter 12345).
