Be Ready While Temps Heat Up

Even though the school year is quickly approaching, the heat in Georgia is still going strong. While you soak up the last few weeks of summer with family and friends, it’s important to keep heat safety tips in mind. Take action and reduce your risk for heat-related injury and illness:

  • Stay indoors as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun
  • Drink plenty of fluids and replace salts and minerals in your body
  • Dress in loose-fitting, lightweight, and light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible. Protect face and head by wearing a wide-brimmed hat
  • Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles
