SUMMER HEAT & FIRE RISKS
Apply sunscreen liberally and reapply it every hour to reduce the risk of sunburn. Remember that you can get a sunburn even on an overcast, windy, or mild day and that sunscreen can be washed away by swimming or sweating. Sunburns increase your risk of skin cancer, so prevention is key.
Keep children under 6 months of age away from
too much direct sunlight. Babies under 6 months
old shouldn’t wear sunscreen, so they need to be
shaded or covered with UV-protective clothing.
Stay hydrated. The hotter it is outside, the more
water you need to drink to keep your body
appropriately hydrated. Being physically active can
hasten dehydration, so drink extra water if you’re
working up a sweat.
People with added vulnerabilities (the very old
and very young, those with breathing conditions
like asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary
disorder, pregnant women, etc.) should stay inside
in an air-conditioned space if the weather becomes dangerously hot (usually above 90 degrees).
Whether you’re using a fire to keep you warm or to
light your area, never let children build or extinguish
a fire without adult supervision. Fire safety is an
important lesson for kids to learn, but not without
an adult nearby.
If you’re planning to be around fire, avoid long,
flowy clothing, and tie back hair.
Never leave a fire unattended, indoors or outside.
Sparks can fly and cause unintended damage to
people or property.
Make sure any fire is fully extinguished before retiring for the evening. Areas of the country are notoriously dry and these areas are prone to forest fires that can destroy homes and take lives. Many such fires began as innocent campfires that are abandoned when nearly extinguished and then a stray spark finds dry brush or another source of combustion nearby. ... See MoreSee Less
