For Summer safety it’s always best to get fresh air in your homes at night or early or late in the day and close blinds and windows during the hottest part of the day.
Check on elderly neighbors and cold fresh fruit can not only make you feel better, but help put nutrients into your system to replenish what is sweated away in these temperatures.
Extreme heat can cause health problems, including cramps, dizziness, headache, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Heat stroke can be fatal if left untreated.
Avoid strenuous exertion in the heat.
Stay cool, stay safe!
