Heat Protection Safety

Many people with disabilities, along with the elderly, need to take precautions against heat exhaustion and heat stroke.  Not only is this group likely to be susceptible to heat related illnesses but they also may fall into a category of not being able to afford the high costs of air conditioning.

There are ways to keep cool, such as fans and the intake of fluids, which we often take for granted.  A dip in a tub of cool water can lower the body temperature significantly.  A stroll in a mall during the heat of the day is a soothing break from the scorching summer sun.  Sometimes we don’t stop and think of the obvious and inexpensive.

Hundreds of people die each year due to heat related illnesses.  If you have relatives or friends who are disabled or elderly make sure to check on them often, especially when temperatures peak ninety-five.  Make sure they have plenty to drink and circulating air.  A simple phone call may be the difference between life and death.
