Helpful tips for staying safe during the hot weather


 

• Look out for others, especially older people, those with underlying conditions and those who live alone are particularly at risk

• Stay cool indoors by closing curtains on rooms that face the sun – and remember that it may be cooler outdoors than indoors

• Keep drinks within easy reach – water is better than sugary or caffeinated drinks for staying hydrated. Avoid excess alcohol.

• Never leave anyone in a closed, parked vehicle, especially infants, young children or animals

• Try to keep out of the sun between 11am to 3pm, when the UV rays are strongest

• Walk in the shade, apply sunscreen and wear a wide-brimmed hat, if you have to go out in the heat

• Avoid physical exertion in the hottest parts of the day

• Make sure you take water with you if you are travelling
