    Heat-related illness is 100% preventable. Simple precautions can keep everyone safe when temperatures soar. Even though we're moving into the fall season, we still have warmer temperatures and heat indexes (when humidity works with heat to make it feel hotter than it is), it's important to remember to protect yourself and your family from the heat.

    • Limit your time outdoors.
    • Shade and rest – take frequent breaks when working or playing out doors. Find shade when possible.
    • Fluids – drink plenty of non-alcoholic and non-caffeinated beverages, even if you don't feel thirsty.
    • Find cool places indoors if you don't have air conditioning, like libraries, rec centers, or malls to spend time. ​
