Heat Safety During Storm Cleanup

ThemostatIt’s hot and humid outside. While residents are cleaning debris from homes, heat safety needs to be kept in mind.

  • Drink plenty of fluids: Drink two to four glasses of cool fluids each hour. Your body needs water to keep cool. Drink water even if you don’t feel thirsty.
  • Do not drink caffeinated or alcoholic beverages because they dehydrate the body.
