Surviving The Heat
Posted On: Jul 22, 2016

Please be aware of the heat the temps are going to be over 100f for the next week  A relative humidity of 60% or more hampers sweat evaporation, which hinders your body's ability to cool itself.  The risk of heat-related illness dramatically increases when the heat index climbs to 90 degrees or more.  Remember that the heat index is even higher when you are standing in full sunshine.

The most common signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion include:

If you, or anyone else, has symptoms of heat exhaustion, it's essential to immediately get out of the heat and rest, preferably in an air-conditioned room. If you can't get inside, try to find the nearest cool and shady place.:

  • Drink plenty of fluid (avoid caffeine )
  • Remove any tight or unnecessary clothing
  • Take a cool shower, bath, or sponge bath
  • Apply other cooling measures such as fans or ice towels

If such measures fail to provide relief within 15 minutes, seek emergency medical help.   Heat exhaustion can result in heat stroke, that can cause brain damage and death.  

After you've recovered from heat exhaustion, you'll probably be more sensitive to high temperatures during the following week. So it's best to avoid hot weather and heavy exercise until your doctor tells you that it's safe to resume your normal activities.
