This is the third series of a report on preventive measures that can save lives. This information was obtained at a breakfast meeting on May 9th, 2008, which was hosted by the Disaster Resistant Community Partners of Evansville.

The motto is: Be Prepared. Act Now. Stay safe!

Taking Emergency Action Series – Summer Weather

Summers in Indiana are a lot of fun, but high temperatures can cause injuries or even death. This is especially true in small children, the elderly, people on medication, or those with weight or alcohol problems. Remember, summer fun means staying safe!

In case of extreme heat:

  • Slow down and avoid strenuous activities when possible. Stay in the coolest available place.
  • Drink plenty of water or non-alcoholic fluids even if you do not feel thirsty. Consul a physician if you have a medical condition that limits what or how much you can drink.
  • Wear clothing that is light and loose fitting, including a hat. This helps to maintain normal body temperature.
  • Spend more time in air-conditioned places, since this reduces the danger from heat.
  • Watch for signs of heat stroke, including muscle cramps, dizziness, confusion, and nausea. If any of these occur, go to a cool place and seek medical attention immediately.
  • Avoid too much sun and use sunscreen. Sunburn slows the skin’s ability to cool itself.
  • Avoid foods and drinks that cause dehydration, like alcohol and caffeinated soft drinks. Do not take salt tablets unless specified by a physician.
  • Reduce water use by not watering your lawn or washing your car. Re-use water when possible. Follow instructions for odd and even watering days.

Do not wait! Prepare for Summer

  • Install air conditioners snugly and insulate around them. Check air ducts for proper insulation.
  • Buy fans to spread cool air around your home.
  • Close floor heat registers nearby.
  • Install temporary reflectors, such as aluminum foil covered cardboard to reflect any heat back outside.
  • Keep the cool air inside by weather-stripping doors and windows.
