Also, drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, take cool showers or baths, apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher 20-30 minutes before going out-side, and check on those who are most vulnerable to the heat.

Anyone who experiences physical stress due to extreme temperatures should seek immediate medical attention, either by calling 911 or by visiting the nearest emergency department.
