Extreme Hot Weather

Print Hot Weather Brief PDF

Stay indoors during extreme heat in air conditioning if possible. Drink lots of water - not sugared, alcohol or drinks that contain caffeine. Eat light meals. Never ever leave a pet or a person in a parked and closed vehicle - the air inside can reach extreme and un-survivable temperatures in a matter of minutes. Try not to overexert yourself in the heat. If you begin to feel heat sickness (cramps, dizziness, headaches, nausea), drink some cool (not cold) water or sport drink and try to get out of the heat. If this does not alleviate your symptoms within a matter of minutes, seek medical help ASAP.
