Here are some tips to stay safe in the heat, according to county officials:
- Stay indoors whenever possible. (Air conditioned spaces are highly recommended!)
- Wear light colored clothing, along with wearing hats and sunglasses as well.
- Wear sunscreen.
- Never leave kids, pets or the elderly in a vehicle.
- Avoid strenuous activities (i.e. sports) that may lead to overexposure in the sun.
- 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.
🌡️High heat & humidity will continue into the weekend & likely into early next week. Stay hydrated & practice heat safety to avoid heat-related illness.
