Avoiding Heat Exhaustion
Beat the heat this summer with these tips.

  • Make sure you stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
  • Apply sunscreen fifteen to thirty minutes before going outside. Re-apply sunscreen every two hours.
  • Wear sunglasses.
  • Stay in the shade when possible. When you can't see your shadow, you're standing in direct sunlight, so you're most likely to get burned.
