ARE YOU PREPARED FOR EXTREME HEAT?

The summer season is officially here and it’s important for Georgians to take action now to prepare for potential extreme heat to reduce the risk of weather-related illnesses.

  • Stay indoors in air-conditioned spaces as much as possible, and limit exposure to the sun.
  • Avoid strenuous work during the warmest part of the day. Use a buddy system when working in extreme heat, and take frequent breaks.
  • Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles.
