We’re in the heart of summer, and it’s hot! The weather is nice and sunny, but the heat can be dangerous. Here’re some tips on keeping yourself safe so you can enjoy the season to the fullest.

1. Don’t push yourself. Doing a lot of physically demanding work when it’s hot out is dangerous. The National Weather Service (NWS) recommends putting work off until it’s cooler, if possible.

4. Be on the lookout for symptoms. Early signs of heat-related illness are feeling weak, tired, nauseous, dizzy, or getting a headache.

5. Don’t take risks. If you start feeling that the heat is affecting you or you see someone who might be feeling the effects of a heat-related illness, get help. The summer weather can be wonderful, but getting sick isn’t. Keep these tips in mind so you can relax and enjoy the weather in peace!
