Tips to Cope with a Heat Wave
Try to get out of your house or apartment for at least two hours a day and visit an air-conditioned store, restaurant or mall. Go to a movie, museum or library - anywhere to get a break from the heat. Family tempers can flare when everyone is uncomfortable, so plan ahead for places you can go.
Get up early to do necessary chores and take a siesta during the day. Slow down to keep your family and pets safe during a heat wave. Learn the symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke: get help if needed as this can become a life threatening condition. Check on your elderly neighbors as well.
