Summer is here and all of you need to stay safe when playing outdoors to avoid heat exhaustion, dehydration, or heat stroke.
Heat exhaustion signs and symptoms:
Cool clammy skin, headache, dizziness, rapid pulse, cramps, dark urine, slightly elevated body temperature
Treatment: Get into air condition, drink water, and watch for symptoms of heat stroke
Heat stroke signs and symptoms:
High body temperature, no sweat, rapid pulse, difficulty breathing, possible seizures or coma.
Treatment: Move to cool area, call 911, and use ice to cool them down.
Watch your children and running buddies closely to avoid heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Drink water before you get thirsty instead of waiting until you feel thirsty.
