Here are the dangers of too much exposure to heat as Erie County braces for possible record-breaking temps this week according to WIVB Weather Forecasts and News Report.

  •  Feeling faint, dizzy or nauseous
  • Excessive sweating and cool, clammy skin
  • Muscle cramps
  • Fast and weak pulse

Here some advice as to how to 'Beat The Heat' per WGRZ:

 Drink water. Stay hydrated with water and avoid pop, sugary juices and alcohol. Don’t wait until you feel thirsty to drink.

 

• Find places with air conditioning. The Buffalo and Erie County Public Libraries are open and available. Social distancing guidelines are in place and individuals over age 2 are required to wear a cloth face covering or mask.

 

• Limit time outside. Heat and UV rays are strongest from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Plan any outdoor activities in the early morning or later in the evening.

 

• Protect your skin. Wear sunscreen of at least SPF 30, and reapply at least every two hours. Wear hats and sunglasses when in direct sunlight.

 

• Wear loose and lightweight clothing. Sweating helps to cool your body.

 

• Do not leave children or pets in closed cars. That puts them at risk for heat stroke and death. Look before you lock your car.

 

• Do not use electric fans when the temperature outside is more than 95 degrees. This can increase the risk of heat-related illness. Fans create air flow and a false sense of comfort but do not reduce body temperature.

 

• Watch for signs of heat-related illness in family members, friends and neighbors.

• Limit your time outside during the hottest part of the day, and watch for signs of heat-related illnesses in yourself and those around you.
