Excessive heat can lead to major health issues and sometimes death. Here are some tips to stay chill and safe!

First of all – hydrate! Drinking lots of water is key to keeping your body cooled down. The CDC recommends drinking more water than usual. Also, avoid alcohol.

Working outside? Bring cool water and pack a frozen water bottle so they can thaw throughout the day. Use a wet washcloth with cool water to cool your body temperature.

No central cooling system? Open the windows to let fresh air circulate.

Do not rely on just a fan to keep you cool. If you’re using a fan, open the windows and allow fresh air to circulate.

If possible, wear fabrics that allow easy air flow around your body.
