Be Careful During the Dog Days of Summer
Posted July 12, 2016

Over the past week, there have been two heat-related calls to 911 in White Bluff. The first responders of the WB VFD would like to remind you to be especially careful during the dog days of summer. People aged 65 and older are more susceptible to temperature changes and may overheat quickly.

The CDC recommends the following:

Stay Cool
Keep your body temperature cool to avoid heat-related illness.
Stay in air-conditioned buildings as much as possible.
Find an air-conditioned shelter.
Do not rely on a fan as your primary cooling device.
Avoid direct sunlight.
Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing.
Take cool showers or baths.
Check on those most at-risk twice a day.

Stay Hydrated
Because your body loses fluids through sweat, you can become dehydrated during times of extreme heat.
Drink more water than usual.
Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink more fluids.
Drink from two to four cups of water every hour while working or exercising outside.
Avoid alcohol or liquids containing high amounts of sugar.
Remind others to drink enough water.

Stay Informed
Stay updated on local weather forecasts so you can plan activities safely when it's hot outside.
Check local news for extreme heat alerts and safety tips.
Learn the symptoms of heat illness.

Muscle cramping might be the first sign of heat-related illness, and may lead to heat exhaustion or stroke. Here is how you can recognize heat exhaustion and heat stroke and what to do:

Heat Exhaustion
Heavy sweating
Weakness
Cold, pale, and clammy skin
Fast, weak pulse
Nausea or vomiting
Fainting

What You Should Do

Move to a cooler location.
Lie down and loosen your clothing.
Apply cool, wet cloths to as much of your body as possible.
Sip water.
If you have vomited and it continues, seek medical attention immediately.


Heat Stroke
High body temperature (above 103°F)*
Hot, red, dry or moist skin
Rapid and strong pulse
Possible unconsciousness

What You Should Do

Call 911 immediately — this is a medical emergency.
Move the person to a cooler environment.
Reduce the person's body temperature with cool cloths or even a bath.
Do NOT give fluids.

And this specifically for those over 65

People aged 65 and older are more susceptible to temperature changes and may overheat quickly.  Special care must be taken to prevent heat related illnesses.
