Keep cool this summer!

Very hot weather can sometimes make you feel tired and faint, or make it hard for you to breathe, or give you a headache.

If your body temperature is more than 41C (106F) and you stop sweating, call 911. You may have heat stroke.

When the weather is hot:

  • Drink lots of water
  • Rest in a cool place
  • Use fans
  • Sleep with your windows open
  • Cool off with showers or baths
  • Tell a friend that you are okay
  • Never leave children alone in a car
