Hot Weather

We have had some absolutely FABULOUS weather this past week.  I know I have enjoyed myself outside for the past week than I have for quite so time.  We are now officially moving into the summer season and forecasts show that our high temps will soon be rising.  In our area, we tend to have a number of heat related injuries and illnesses during this time of the year.  Its better to be safe than sorry!!  Here are some suggested ways to prevent injury and illness in this hot weather:

  • Wear light colored clothing
  • Wear loose fitting clothing made of light fabrics
  • Wear a ventilated hat when outside for extended periods of time
  • Try to avoid drinking alcohol
  • Stay out of direct heat/sunlight as much as possible
  • Take frequent breaks if working outside
  • Do not exchange drinking water for sports drinks
  • Continuously take frequent short drinks of water throughout the day
  • If you're looking for a way to stay cool, go to the mall, movies, a museum, the library, or any other cool air conditioned location

Drink WaterBe sure to take extra measures to stay safe in this hot weather if you are exercising or sick.  Try to prevent dehydration and over exposure.  Increase your fluid intake as needed.  We need to do all we can to take care of ourselves and watch out for others.  Be sure to keep a close watch on children, older adults, and any sick individuals.

We are already almost half way through 2008.  Before we know it these hot summer days will be over.  Lets all be very careful during these last few days to take care of ourselves so we can decrease those numbers of heat related injuries before we get to the fall!

Hi Kimberly,
I just love the warm weather.  I'm a really cold natured person so the high temps do not get to me as much as they do some.  Your tips are helpful and timely.  Enjoy your summer!

KIMBERLY, you give some great ways to beat the heat.  We have been in summer mode for almost a month now.  The forecast is 93, 94, 95, 93 etc. etc. etc. and it will be like that until late September.  How long does your summer last?

Kimberly.... man I do remember that heat.  You're about 2 hours west of my hometown.  The summers were blazing hot.  I made the mistake of going home to visit some friends last year in August.  What was I thinking?  I almost died it was so darn hot.  Good tips!

Kimberly, What a great list you compiled. I especially worry about the elderly when the heat is so intense.

Where did our spring go?  Did I sleep through it or something?
