Extreme heat can be dangerous to both people and property. Heat-related illnesses, such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke, can be life-threatening. In addition, extreme heat can cause damage to personal property, such as warping and cracking of wood, melting of plastics, and damage to electronics.

Tips for Staying Safe During Extreme Heat Warnings

Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol and caffeine, which can dehydrate you.

Tip #2: Stay Cool

Limit outdoor activities during the hottest parts of the day, typically between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If you must be outside, wear a hat and sunscreen and take frequent breaks in the shade or in air-conditioned buildings.

Tip #4: Protect Your Property

Check on elderly neighbors, friends, and family members who may be more susceptible to heat-related illnesses.

Extreme heat warnings can be dangerous to both people and property, but by taking precautions and staying informed, you can stay safe during the summer months. Remember to stay hydrated, stay cool, limit outdoor activities, protect your property, and check on others. Stay safe and enjoy the summer!
