Dress For The Heat

Drink Lots of Water



Drink lots and lots of water when you have to be out in the heat. It’s a great idea to keep a bottle of water or juice with you at all times. Avoid alcohol and caffeine which can dehydrate you., Pernell, Pernell


Slow Down



Take lots of breaks and avoid strenuous activity in the hottest part of the day. If you have to get out in the sun and work, try to pick the coolest parts of the day., Ryk Neethling, Ryk Neethling


Stay Indoors When Possible



If air conditioning is available, bask in its glory whenever possible. If not, stay out of the sunshine on the lowest levels of your home. Remember: electric fans do not cool, they only circulate air., Joel Bedford, Joel Bedford


Be a Good Neighbor



When it gets hot, remember to be a good neighbor and check on the elderly, disabled, and those who do not have air conditioning in your neighborhood. You could save someone’s life.
