Dear Residents,

Heatstroke is a condition caused by your body overheating, usually due to prolonged
exposure to or physical exertion in high temperatures.

So as a precaution against heat exhaustion and the eventual occurrence of heat stroke
that can cause instantaneous death, we have listed below some helpful reminders when
exposed to extreme heat:


  • High body temperature
  • Loss of consciousness or passing out
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Fast strong pulse or rapid heartbeat
  • Nausea
  • Seizures
  • Confusion
  • Red hot skin
  • Not sweating

First Aid:

  1. Call for medical help.
  2. Move the person to a cooler place.
  3. Help lower the person’s temperature by removing clothing before using cool clothes or a cool bath.
  4. Apply ice packs on wrists, armpits, and groin.


  1. Drink plenty of water.
  2. Limit the amount of time spent outdoors.
  3. Schedule strenuous activities at the beginning or end of the day when it is cooler.
  4. Do not leave children or pets in closed hot spaces like cars,
  5. Stay in air-conditioned or well-ventilated areas during heat waves.
  6. Wear lightweight and light-colored, loose-fitting clothes.

Summer is truly here, and extreme heat and high temperatures are expected. Stay calm
and practice sun safety during extreme heat conditions.

Thank you and stay safe!
