Keep your family and friends cool this summer! With the kids on summer break, your house will always be full! Everyone will need an escape from the brutal summer heat. Especially in the Valley, summer temperatures can stay around 100 degrees for days on end. These high temperatures bring the risk of dehydration and heat exhaustion, even heat stroke.
Risk of Heat Exhaustion During Summer
According to WebMD, “The risk of heat-related illness dramatically increases when the heat index climbs to 90 degrees or more. So it’s important — especially during heat waves — to pay attention to the reported heat index, and also to remember that the heat index is even higher when you are standing in full sunshine.”
The site also mentions there are two types of heat exhaustion: water depletion and salt depletion. Symptoms of water depletion include excessive thirst and weakness. They also include headache and loss of consciousness. Symptoms of salt depletion include nausea and vomiting. Also watch out for muscle cramps and dizziness.
If you or someone else is showing any of these signs, the first thing to do is, “immediately get out of the heat and rest, preferably in an air-conditioned room.” Be sure your Air Conditioning is installed and working properly!
If you are away from your house, there are other things to remedy heat exhaustion. Drink plenty of fluids (except caffeine or alcohol). Remove any tight or unnecessary clothing. Use fans or ice-towels to cool down.
No one wants to worry about heat exhaustion this summer! Kids are ready for fun in the sun. But at the end of the day, everyone likes to come back to a cool home.
