Keep Cool During this Hot Week
The temperature this week is expected to reach the low to mid 90s. Prolonged exposure to hot temperatures can cause heat-related illnesses, such as heat stroke, heat exhaustion, and heat cramps. These can be serious and life threatening.
Below are some tips and reminders from the Santa Clara County Fire Department and Santa Clara County Public Health Department on how to stay cool and safe in the heat:
1) Drink plenty of liquids. Drink water even if you don’t feel thirsty. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and sugar since they cause your body to lose fluids.
2) Limit physical activity. Avoid physical activity during the hottest time of the day, which can extend from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
3) Never leave people or pets in a closed, parked car. Always check the back seat of the vehicle prior to walking away.
4) Stay in air-conditioned areas. Help keep cool by spending time at malls, libraries, movie theaters, and community centers.
5) Cool off by taking a bath or shower. Cool, plain water baths or moist towels work best.
6) Wear cool clothing. Lightweight, light-colored, and loose-fitting clothing can help you keep cool. Cotton clothes are good because they let sweat evaporate.
7) Do not bundle babies. Babies do not handle heat well because their sweat glands are not fully developed. Do not put them in blankets or heavy clothing.
8) Cover your head. Wear a wide-brimmed, vented hat or use an umbrella when outdoors because your head absorbs heat easily.
9) Wear sunglasses and sunscreen. Use sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher when outdoors.
10) Rest often in shady areas. Find shady places to cool down when outdoors, such as underneath trees.
