Tips for hot days

  • Drink lots of plain, cool water before you feel thirsty.
  • Stay cool and, if possible, take breaks in shade or an air-conditioned place.
  • Wear a wide brimmed hat, UV protective sunglasses, and loose-fitting long shirts and pants.
  • Stay in the shade whenever possible.
  • Reschedule or plan outdoor activities for cooler parts of the day.
  • Call or visit family, friends and neighbours, especially isolated adults and seniors who are at greater risk of suffering from heat-related illness.
  • If you feel faint, have difficulty breathing or feel confused and disoriented because of the heat, call your doctor. In an emergency, call 911.
