Heat Safety Tips:

  • If it is really hot, try stay in a cool place like inside or in the shade. Heat goes up so if you are inside, downstairs may be cooler than upstairs.
  • If you have to be outside when it is hot, wear sunscreen, light clothing and a hat
  • Drink lots of water and eat light meals
  • Try not to do a lot of running or playing that makes you tired
  • If you don’t feel good, tell a grown-up
  • Make sure your pets have water and shade
