Prevent heat illness with these “cool” tips!

High temperatures and humidity can stress your body's ability to cool itself, making heat illness a concern during hot weather. Symptoms of heat illness include cramps, exhaustion, fainting, dizziness and disorientation. Heat illness can be fatal, but it is preventable with these “cool” tips!

·    Condition yourself for working in hot weather. Start slowly then build up to more physical work over a few days.

·    Drink plenty of liquids. Hydration is a continuous process. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink water!

·    If you get too hot, find shade. A shaded area is adequate when it blocks all direct sunlight and has room to assume a comfortable posture.

·   Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing when working in the sun.
