Beat the Heat this Fourth

Summer has come with a vengeance in most of the U.S. Nearly all expected health-related injuries can be prevented.

PositiveTip: Things you can do to prevent a trip to the emergency room or worse:

  • Drink plenty of water all day day–even if you are not thirsty.
  • Avoid drinking alcohol and caffeinated drinks.
  • Wear lightweight, light-colored, and loose-fitting clothes.
  • Avoid strenuous physical activity in the hottest parts of the day.
  • Never leave toddlers or animals in a closed car.
