Here we are June 1st and we know what that means…..the heat is on! Here are some friendly heat safety tips from your friends at Freedom Insurance Group.
-stay inside if possible in air conditioning during the mid morning to mid afternoon hours
-drink plenty of water and other fluids (avoid alcohol and carbonated/caffeine)
-use small appliances like a crock pot and tabletop grills rather than your traditional oven
-when using a fan, do not put it directly in the window, rather place it so it blows in the room and out the window
-stay on the lowest level of your home
-seek medical care right away if you become nauseous, vomiting have cramps
-check on the elderly
signs of heat exhaustion are:
dizziness, excessive sweating, headache, pale skin, pulse that is weak or rapid, fainting
We are looking forward to a wonderful summer and hope these tips help you enjoy yourself.
