Tons of heat across the East Coast. Tons of heat across the East Coast.

Summer is around the corner coming on Saturday and temperatures are already in the 90s!

With school out, and more hot weather along the way, we want to keep you and your family safe during all of your outdoor activities. There are many ways to prevent heat exhaustion or stroke even on the hottest of days.

The first thing you want to do is schedule your activities wisely. Avoid planning outdoor events during the hottest time of the day. You also want to dress appropriately for summer. Lightweight clothing with light colors breathes well and reflects sunlight to help keep your body cool.

You will also want to stay hydrated, so drink plenty of water. It's also a good idea to take lots of breaks during strenuous activities. When outdoors, try to avoid being in direct sunlight for an extended period of time. Finally, you always want to spend plenty of time in air conditioned areas as well in order to stay cool.

By following these tips, you are sure to have a fun and safe summer!
