Staying cool during a heat advisory

The NWS has stated on its website that “heat related illnesses increase significantly during extreme heat events.”

Young children, infants, older adults, people with chronic medical conditions and pregnant women are at higher risk to heat related illnesses, according to the NWS.

Wait to do any outdoor activities until the coolest time of day during a heat advisory. The NWS says those who are at higher risk to heat related illnesses should stay in cool areas.

Dress for the heat if planning to go outside and protect your skin from the sun.

The NWS says to stay hydrated, eat light foods and spend time in air-conditioned locations.

More information on how to stay cool in the heat can be found on the NWS website.
