Also it’s important to take care of yourself and people around you to make sure you’re safe when it’s hot outside.

The American Red Cross recommends people to stay hydrated and avoid caffeine or alcohol. Also it’s a good idea to avoid extreme temperature changes, wear loose fitting, lightweight, and light colored clothing. Slow down and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day. Check on pets, family, friends and neighbors who may not have air conditioning.
