With the next several days predicted to remain in the high 80’s, it’s safe to say that the summer heat has finally arrived.
But with summer fun come dangers, as heat waves can lead to dehydration and heatstroke.
For those spending their summer working outdoor jobs: stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade as often as possible.
If you know someone who is elderly, sick or does not have air conditioning, check up on them. Make sure they’re keeping cool and drinking plenty of fluids.
