Avoiding overheating in the summer

As some of the hottest days of the year approach, it is important that we know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat strokes. Knowing these signs will help you keep yourself and others safe. Signs of heat exhaustion can be dizziness, sweating, cool clammy skin, vomiting, a rapid pulse, and muscle cramps.

Muscatine Paramedic Joe Timmson gives tips to avoid heat exhaustion and heat stroke before they happen. Doing things as simple as drinking plenty of water can keep your body cool and fully hydrated so you are less likely to overheat. “Avoid the hottest part of the days,” Timmson says.

In addition to dressing cool, be aware of what kind of colors you are wearing as the sun is attracted to dark colors. It is not uncommon for people to experience heat stroke or heat exhaustion in hot weather conditions, so it is important, when you see these signs, to not take them lightly and seek help immediately.
