Know If You’re In a High-Risk Group

This group includes children, the elderly, pregnant women, people who don’t have access to air conditioners, people who have suddenly being exposed to hot weather without an acclimation period, people who are taking certain medications, such as those that narrow your blood vessels or beta blockers, as well as people who suffer from certain health conditions, such as heart disease, lung disease and/or obesity. If you are in a high-risk group, make sure that you drink plenty of water, and remain in a cool environment.

Additionally, family and friends of those in high-risk groups should be sure to check up on them to make sure that they’re safe and taking the steps they need to avoid heat-related illnesses.
