Important Things You MUST Do In Extreme Heat

Any Other Suggestions.....Don't Hesitate To Share

July 17, 2019

We are headed for EXTREME Heat and there are some definite DO's to do to stay safe and healthy and alive.  

For starters for YOU to stay healthy:

-STAY HYDRATED. Yes, drink water.  Lots of water. Not soda or other sugar-heavy drinks or coffee.......

-Find Air conditioning if you can.

-If you are working outside take FREQUENT breaks.

-If you can find SHADE.

-NO strenuous activities.

-Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing.

-Make sure to not leave your kids or animals in a HOT car, even for a few minutes.  That's all it takes for something drastic to happen.

-Check on family members and neighbors.

Now, there is another thing to worry about.....the health of your CAR:

-Check your coolant and your anti-freeze....but NEVER remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot

-Have your battery tested.  Heat and vibration are a battery’s worst enemies.

-Keep your tires properly inflated. Driving on under-inflated tires can cause tires to overheat and increase the likelihood of a blowout.

-Be prepared for a possible breakdown. Even with preventive maintenance.  You should have a well-stocked emergency kit with water, non-perishable food, jumper cables, flashlight, cell phone charger and first-aid kit.
