The Health Unit offers these tips to prevent a heat illness by following these tips to stay cool:

  • Drink plenty of water, even if you don’t feel thirsty
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat and lightweight, loose-fitting clothing
  • Take a cool bath or shower
  • Limit outdoor activities to the coolest part of the day
  • Do not leave children, adults or pets in parked cars
  • Stay connected with family members, neighbours or friends during very hot days in case they need assistance
  • Look for shade or a cool shelter in an air-conditioned location if available.
  • Learn about ways to keep your home cool during the summer (e.g., keep window shades or drapes drawn and blinds closed on the sunny side of your home). If you have an air conditioner, make sure it works properly before the hot weather starts.
