Here are some ways to stay safe as the summer temperatures heat up and places to go to cool down.

Following these tips will help you stay safe during the warm weather:

  • Wear lightweight, light colored loose fitting clothing as well as a hat and sunglasses when outdoors.
  • Always apply sunscreen and limit exposure during mid-day.
  • When participating in outdoor activities, do so with a buddy and pace yourself in the heat.
  • Always monitor those at risk for heat related illnesses especially those on medications for heart disease, high blood pressure, etc. as they may be affected more by the heat.
  • Never leave children, infants or pets inside vehicles.
