There’s so much to enjoy about summer: backyard barbeques, vacations, swimming, and of course, warm weather. But if it gets too hot or you overdo it in the heat, you could experience problems. Heat-related illnesses such as heatstroke or heat exhaustion happen when your body can’t stay cool enough in hot temperatures. Keeping the body cool and drinking lots of water in hot environments can protect you from most heat-related illnesses. If you begin to feel tired, dizzy, or nauseated, or if you develop a headache, get out of the heat immediately. For more information about who is at risk and what to do if you’re experiencing symptoms, check out this helpful resource.
