Extreme heat is when summertime temperatures are substantially hotter and/or more humid than the average at that time of year.
Ways to protect yourself from the heat include: Drink plenty of fluids, replace salt and minerals, wear light-weight and loose-fitting clothing, wear sunscreen, and limit outdoor activity to mornings and evenings. When you work or play in extreme heat, use the buddy system and keep an eye on each other. Stay cool as much as you can. And above all, NEVER LEAVE CHILDREN OR PETS IN CARS!
