Tips for Staying Cool

  • Never wait in a parked vehicle or leave a child, elder, or pet waiting in a parked car. Temperatures inside parked vehicles can rise dangerously high, even with the windows open.
  • Slow down. Reduce or reschedule strenuous activities until the heat of the day has passed.
  • Stay out of the sun. Sunburn interferes with the skin’s ability to cool.
  • Dress for the weather. Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing to reflect heat and sunlight.
  • Drink plenty of water and non-alcoholic and decaffeinated fluids. People with health conditions such as epilepsy, heart, or kidney disease should talk to a doctor before increasing their consumption.
  • Find the cool places. Visit a family member or neighbor with air conditioning, or go to the nearest public library or other cooled space.
  • Take a cool bath, shower or sponge bath. Cool water can help cool an overheated body.
  • Pay attention to older adults and people with disabilities or health conditions. Check on those who are at-risk at least twice a day.
