Here are a few tips to keeping cool on hot summer days:

– The first step to protecting yourself from extreme heat is air conditioning. If you don’t have one at home, you can take a trip to a shopping mall, movie theater, library or other public health sponsored heat-relief shelter.

– If you need to be outdoors during high temperatures, try to schedule it instead late in the afternoon to avoid the hottest points of the day.

– Take frequent breaks, increase fluid intake, and have cool showers or baths to keep your temperature down.

– It is also important to take note not to leave children or pets in a closed vehicle when the temperature is high.
