Doctors warn of the dangers of being in the heat

Today’s heat index could increase the chances for someone to get sickened by the heat.

Health Care officials urge people who want to exercise outdoors to do so in the morning or later in the evening to prevent the possibility of a heat stroke.

Even though the temperature only hit ninety degrees, experts said that is still hot enough for someone to get very sick in the heat.

A few tips to stay safe outdoors are to wear a hat, sunscreen, light and loose fitted clothing. Also, drink plenty of water.

“When it starts to get this high of heat out a fan may not be good enough. You may need an air conditioner. So, check on the elderly, check on those who have chronic illness to make sure they are cool and not having heat emergencies,” said Dwight Jones at Broadway Urgent Care.
