Survive the heat this summer

December 18 2019

Extreme heat can lead to illnesses and deaths so it’s important that you know what to do.

 

Here are the 5 tips to #SurviveTheHeat:

 

☀️ Drink more water

Even if you don’t feel thirsty, drink water. Take a bottle with you always

☀️ Never leave anyone in a car

Never leave kids, older people or pets in cars. The temperature inside a parked car can double within minutes.

☀️ Stay somewhere cool

Seek out air-conditioned buildings, draw your blinds, use a fan, take cool showers and dress in light and loose clothing made from natural fabrics.

☀️ Plan ahead

Schedule activities in the coolest part of the day and avoid exercising in the heat. If you must go out, wear a hat and sunscreen and take a bottle of water with you.

☀️ Check in on others

Look after those most at risk in the heat – your neighbour living alone, older people, the young, people with a medical condition and don’t forget your pets.

 

If you need somewhere cool to escape to, you can spend some time in our air-conditioned cafe area and stay hydrated with our drinking fountains.
