Beat the Heat Tips

Extreme heat can be extremely hazardous for the frail, elderly and those with chronic illnesses. Here are 10 tips to help beat the heat.

  1. Hydrate. Drink plenty of liquids, particularly water. Avoid caffeine and alcohol.
  2. Avoid the mid-day sun. If possible, confine errands and outdoor work to before 10 am and after 6 pm.
  3. Avoid outdoor activity and exercise, especially if it is strenuous and very hot outside.
  4. Spend as much time as possible in air-conditioned buildings. If your home does not have it, visit the library, movie theater or other public location that is cool.
  5. Avoid using the stove or oven to cook. Heavy, hot meals also add heat to your body.
  6. Take cool shower, baths or sponge bath to cool down.
  7. Wear loose-fitting, light-weight and light-colored clothing.
  8. Seek emergency assistance if you notice symptoms of heat stroke. These include:

Nausea and vomiting

Fainting

Heavy breathing

Rapid Pulse

Not sweating, even if it’s hot

Dry, flushed skin

Change in behavior – becoming confused, grouchy or easily upset

Body temperature greater than 104 degrees

9.  To cool down, rub cool, wet washcloths over wrists, face and back of the neck.

10.  Use draperies or shades to reduce the sunshine and help cool the house.
