In our continued quest for safety we thought this article would be of interest in light of the extreme heat wave we are having right now.

We encourage all to be prudent when it come to dealing with the out doors and the high temperatures.

Tips for dealing with dangerous heat

Here are some tips for those who may be suffering from the heat:

— Heat trauma symptoms — Profuse sweating is the first sign of overheating. This can lead to salt imbalance and dehydration.

Heat cramps, another symptom, are treatable by drinking slightly salted water to restore fluids and salts.

Skin may become pale and clammy and breathing may become fast and shallow for people suffering from heat exhaustion. Victims may also vomit and feel disoriented. People with these symptoms should lie with their feet slightly elevated in a cool area and drink a salt-water solution.

— Heat stroke — Victims may stop sweating and their pulse may become weak; they may also lapse into unconsciousness. Victims’ body temperatures must be reduced quickly by removing their clothes and wrapping the person in wet sheets. Medical attention should be sought immediately.

Here’s some other quick tips to keep in mind as the mercury rises:

— Exercise — Exercise in the early morning hours.

— Stay hydrated — Be sure to drink plenty of liquids. Avoid consuming dehydrating beverages such as alcohol and sugary or caffeinated drinks. Also eat food high in water content such as fruit.

— Clothing — Wear light and loose clothing to keep cool. Wear sunglasses to protect eyes and use sun block.

— Children — Children should have limited exposure to the heat. Check on children when they are playing outdoors and provide them with plenty of fluids. Also never leave a child alone in a parked vehicle. Cars can heat up quickly and leaving a child alone could be deadly.
