Record high temperatures are expected in Southern California. During this time, seniors and young children are especially vulnerable to heat stroke. To prevent heat-related problems, authorities recommend several tips.

Hot Weather Tips:

  • Drink plenty of water. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and sugary drinks.
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat, or use an umbrella for shade.
  • Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose clothing.
  • Never leave a child, elderly, disabled person, or animal alone in a vehicle.
  • Visit a friend with air conditioning, or other cool places like malls, libraries, senior centers, or community cooling centers.
  • Check on friends and neighbors who are elderly, have medical conditions, or are at higher risk for problems when it is very hot.
  • You are also at risk if you have certain medical conditions such as high blood pressure, mental health conditions, or previous heat-related illnesses.

Together we can protect ourselves, our families, and prevent heat stroke.
