Extreme Heat Precautions

Most of us enjoy the summer months, but extremely hot weather can be dangerous. These simple precautions can help you beat the heat:

- Stay informed by downloading the WeatherCAN app so you are aware of heat alerts in your area

- Have a plan to stay hydrated, whether you staying at home or going out

- Stay cool by using a room fan or air conditioning and consider sleeping in the coolest room in your house when temperatures go up
