Stay hydrated – Drink plenty of cool water and when possible, electrolyte drinks to replenish hydration. Do not wait until you are thirsty.

Limit sun exposure – When possible, stay in air conditioning on hot days. If you don't have air conditioning, take cool showers or freeze a wet cloth to wipe down your head and neck.

Connect with your loved ones – Be sure to check on less mobile or older friends, family and neighbors who live alone, don't have air conditioning or are hesitant to use their air conditioner.

Clothing - Wear lightweight, light-colored and loose-fitting clothing.
