Stay Safe in the Heat

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for Thursday, July 4. During Houston’s summer months, put these practices into place: 

– Drink more water. Drink lots of liquids even before getting thirsty, but avoid beverages with caffeine or large amounts of sugar. 

– Conduct outdoor work or exercise in the early morning or evening when temperatures are not as high. 

– Wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing that permits the evaporation of perspiration. 

– Do not leave infants, children, senior citizens, or pets unattended in a parked vehicle, even if the windows are cracked open. Check to make sure everyone is out of the car and don’t overlook children who may have fallen asleep. 

– Wear a wide-brimmed hat to help prevent sunburn as well as heat-related illness. Apply sunscreen, which protects from the sun’s harmful rays and reduces the risk of sunburn. 

– Seek accommodations in air-conditioned facilities during the heat of the day if the house is not air-conditioned: a relative’s home, multi-service centers, malls, movie theaters, libraries, etc. 

– Take frequent cool baths or showers if your home is not air-conditioned. – Look out for vulnerable populations. 

– Check on your neighbors.
