A reminder to stay safe in the summer heat says Ft. Bend HHS

With extreme heat arriving early this summer, Fort Bend County Health & Human Services would like to remind everyone to take precautions and be safe outdoors. There are several places in the county that can provide relief from the heat such as: Fort Bend County Libraries, Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels (for those 60 & older), shopping malls, and movie theaters. Be aware of the symptoms of heat related illness:high body temperature, confusion, nausea, and headache. If you experience these symptoms move to a cool area, take a cool shower, and drink plenty of water.

Know the illnesses caused by extreme heat:

• Heat Stroke-the most serious heat-related disorder. It occurs when the body becomes unable to control its temperature: the body’s temperature rises rapidly, the sweating mechanism fails, and the body is unable to cool down.
• Heat Exhaustion-Heat exhaustion is the body’s response to an excessive loss of the water and salt, usually through excessive sweating.
• Heat Syncope- fainting (syncope) episode or dizziness that usually occurs with prolonged standing or sudden rising from a sitting or lying position.
• Heat Rash-skin irritation caused by excessive sweating during hot, humid weather.

To prevent extreme heat illness use these tips:

• Drink plenty of fluids, but avoid drinks with alcohol, caffeine or a lot of sugar. Don’t wait until you are thirsty. Start drinking fluids 30 minutes before going out.
• Plan strenuous outdoor activity for early morning or evening when the temperature is lower.
• Take frequent breaks when working outside.
• Wear sunscreen SPF 15 or higher, wide-brimmed hats and light-colored, loose-fitting clothes.
• Check with a doctor about the effects of sun and heat when taking prescription drugs, especially diuretics or antihistamines.
• Dress infants and children in cool, loose clothing. Shade their heads and faces with hats or an umbrella.
• Check frequently on the elderly and others who made need help.
• NEVER leave anyone or pets in a closed, parked vehicle in hot weather.
