Anyone can be at risk for a heat-related illness. Follow these summer safety tips:

1. Stay Hydrated: Dehydration is another safety concern during the summer months. Be sure to drink enough liquids throughout the day, as our bodies can lose a lot of water through perspiration when the temperature soars.
2. Protect Your Skin: Use sunscreen 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply sunscreen every two hours or after swimming or sweating. Limit sun exposure during the peak intensity hours (between 10am and 4pm). Stay in the shade whenever possible.
3. Water Safety: Remember to always have adult supervision for children. Whether they're in the pool or playing in the sand at the beach, having someone who can help in case there is an emergency.
4. Sports Safety: Not only can injuries happen, but in heat, exhaustion and dehydration can happen more often in the summer months. Make sure to warm up, stretch, and make sure to cool down and drink plenty of water.
