Staying Safe in the Heat this Summer

Jul 13, 2018
Summer is here and with that comes hot temperatures. As we spend more time outside doing the usual summer activities, it’s important to know the ways to stay safe in the heat and protect your body from heat related illnesses. Here are some tips from Valley Baptist Health System to help you enjoy your summer and be safe while doing it.

Whether you are enjoying a family picnic or outdoor extracurricular activities, it is important to keep these tips in mind.
  • Stay hydrated and increase your fluid intake regardless of your activity level
  • Eat small meals and eat more often
  • Wearing appropriate clothing and sunscreen
  • Stay in shade when possible
  • Exercise in the morning hours when temperatures are lower
  • Take frequent breaks if you must work outdoors
Signs you may be affected by the heat include the following:
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness/Weakness
  • Irritability
  • Thirst
  • Heavy Sweating
The spectrum of heat related illnesses vary from heat exhaustion, when your body is beginning to show signs of dehydration, to heat stroke, being the most severe form of heat-related illnesses, requiring immediate medical attention. Children and the elderly are at additional risk for heat related illnesses during hot temperatures, so it is important to check on them often, as well as pets.

Enjoy your summer and stay safe by always being prepared with plenty of fluids and taking extra precautions. If at any time symptoms progress, call 911 immediately.
