Survive the Heat

Sun

With the heat index pushing 120, drinking water is more important than ever.  Water keeps you hydrated and helps regulate your body temperature, decreasing your risk for heat stroke.  Stay indoors during the hottest part of the day and wear light-colored, loose clothing.  Children are particularly susceptible to extreme heat.  Their sweat glands are not fully developed yet (the body’s way of cooling itself down).  Pay attention to irritability, tiredness, or other actions that may seem like misbehaving as this could be a sign it’s time to get inside and cool down.
