County offers tips to deal with expected Heat Wave

June 9th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

The National Weather Service is predicting warmer than average temperatures in our region, starting on Saturday, June 10 and extending through the middle of next week, with daytime highs possibly reaching into the low-to-mid 90’s. Please monitor weather and heat conditions, and adjust your schedule, if possible, to take advantage of cooler temperatures during the morning or evening hours for any outdoor activities.
PREVENTING HEAT-RELATED ILLNESS:
• Drink more fluids, regardless of your activity level. Don’t drink liquids that contain alcohol or large amounts of sugar; these actually cause you to lose more body fluid. Avoid very cold drinks as they can cause stomach cramps.
• Stay indoors in an air-conditioned space. If your home does not have air conditioning, go to the public library or the shopping mall. Even a few hours spent in air conditioning can help your body stay cooler when you go back into the heat.
