Avoid the sun from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. when the burning rays are strongest.
Reduce physical activity.
Wear a wide-brimmed hat and light colored lightweight, loose-fitting clothes when you are outdoors
Avoid hot, heavy meals that include proteins.

Check on elderly neighbors and family and friends who do not have air conditioning.
Drink plenty of fluids even if you are not thirsty. Avoid alcohol.
Use sun screen with a sun protection factor of at least 15 if you need to be in the sun.
Don’t forget about your pets, they need plenty of water and shade.
