Tips to Beat the Heat

Cool Zone sites help community members keep cool during hot summer days, but there are other things people can do to beat the heat:

  • Stay hydrated with water. Avoid sugary beverages. 
  • Check on friends and neighbors at high risk for heat-related illness.
  • Stay cool in an air conditioned area. 
  • NEVER leave kids or pets in a closed, parked vehicle.
  • If you go outside, remember: wear a hat; wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing; use sunscreen (SPF 15 or higher); and bring water. 
  • Limit time outdoors. Take breaks often.
