Summer Safety

Beat the Heat

Summer is off to a HOT start. The body sweats to cool itself down. During hot weather, especially with high humidity, sweating just isn’t enough and temperatures can rise quickly to dangerous levels. Our Adopt-A-Highway workers spend many hours in the sun picking up litter and making sure the highways are clean. So we thought we would share some of our Beat the Heat tips:

  • Drink plenty of water, before and after you are in the sun
  • Drink water every 15 minutes even if you are not thirsty
  • Stay away from alcohol, caffeinated and sugary drinks which contribute to dehydration
  • Wear loose fitting, lightweight and light-colored clothing
  • Wear a hat
  • Apply sunscreen
  • Rest frequently in the shade to cool down
  • Know the symptoms of Heat Exhaustion and Heatstroke (see graphic)
Beat the Heat - know the symptoms of heat illness & save a life!

Know the symptoms of heat illness & save a life!

If you suspect somebody is suffering from heat-related illness, get them into a cool spot and contact medical personnel.
