Heat Exhaustion Safety Tips

Summer isn't just about all fun, but about safety also. Stay cool with a rotating fan, air conditioning, ice cream, popsicles, cold drinks, ice cubes, sun block, UV sunglasses, and water of course.

Getting sleep in the summer, whenever you can, is very important. Take a nap in the daytime to prevent fatigue. It's important to wear light colored clothing, such as: yellow, white, light pinks, light blues, light orange, light greens and so forth. Try to avoid wearing dark colored shirts, like: black, brown, dark blues, and other dark colors. Wearing light colors will keep you cooler; and darker colors attract heat more.

Sitting in the shade under a tree just to feel the cool wind blow is a smart idea. If you feel your body temperature getting too hot; get a wash rag, put it in cold water and apply it to your forehead, this should lower your body heat a little. Also putting your feet in cool water in the summer is a fun and cooling idea.

Furthermore, to help keep your house cool at night, water your front and back lawns with a water hose or water sprinklers. But never sleep with the fan blowing directly on you; always have the fan's air rotating around the room. And go to sleep in cool and light fitting clothes; sleeping with just sheets on your bed might help.


Summer time Safety Tips

Ways to keep your home cooler is by cleaning dust away, and putting away things that you will not use during the summer, such as: winter clothes, put them in your garage, or in storage, or in boxes, also clean your carpet, buy house flower-plants to put in each room; keep them watered. House plants will keep the home cooler and will provide more oxygen in the home as well. Most of all have fun fun fun in all your summer time events. Remember, stay cool and safe.

I wish I could still enjoy the sun and get a tan. As a teenager, I used to go to the beach and BURN without sun screen. Result: cancer spots on my nose, and a strict ruling by my dermatologist to "STAY OUT OF THE SUN". We didn't know the dangers back then, so we didn't worry about taking precautions. You're right on with your article.

I agree that it is important to make sure that you are sage in the summer time heat. If you are in swimming pool make sure that you know the rules and teach your kids the rules for the pool. Also, always make sure that sun screen is being used!
