TIPS FOR THE HOT WEATHER
Mayor Amato Urges Residents to Stay Hydrated and Indoors, when possible.
With the extreme heat hitting our area this week, Mayor Carmen F. Amato, Jr., is urging residents to stay hydrated. "Residents, especially our seniors should drink plenty of liquids, preferably water and avoid going outside, if possible.” Mayor Amato said.
According to the Ocean County Board of Health, there are some very simple precautions that you can take to keep yourself and your loved ones safe during extended periods of heat. Stay in the air-conditioning, drink plenty of water and avoid caffeine and alcohol. Wear light clothing and limit outdoor activities during the hottest part of the day.
Take these necessary precautions to prevent serious health effects such as heat exhaustion of heat stroke:
If you do not have air-conditioning, visit the local library, a supermarket, the Mall, the movies, etc.
Drink more water than usual.
Drink from two to four cups of water every hour while working or exercising outside.
Avoid alcohol or liquids containing high amount of sugar.
Make sure everyone in your family is drinking enough water, also.
Check your local news for extreme heat warning and safety tips.
Keep your family aware of weather and heat safety information.
