Keep Your Cool During Extreme Hot Weather

Oppressive summer heat is more than uncomfortable. High temperatures and humidity can pose a health and safety threat.

Hot Weather Tips:

  • Drink lots of water and natural juices; avoid alcoholic beverages, coffee and sodas.
  • Avoid going outside in extreme heat.
  • If you don’t have air conditioning, keep shades drawn and blinds closed, but windows slightly open.Keep electric lights off or turned down.
  • Minimize use of your oven and stove.
  • Wear loose, light, cotton clothing.
  • Take cool baths and showers.
  • Don’t leave anyone (including pets) in a parked car, even for a few minutes.

Remember…

  • Check on relatives, neighbors and friends.

A Cooling Center is an air-conditioned facility where residents can go to find relief from extreme heat.
