How to Beat the Heat Amid Blistering Temperatures

Temperatures are expected to remain in the 90s for the next several days including temps close to 100 degrees on the weekend.

Here are some tips to stay safe in the heat, according to county officials:

  1. Hydrate.
  2. Stay indoors whenever possible. (Air conditioned spaces are highly recommended!)
  3. Wear light colored clothing, along with wearing hats and sunglasses as well.
  4. Wear sunscreen.
  5.  Never leave kids, pets or the elderly in a vehicle.
  6. Avoid strenuous activities (i.e. sports) that may lead to overexposure in the sun.
  7. Check in on people who may be at high risk. Examples include chronically ill individuals, obese individuals, the elderly, and children younger than the age of four.
