BEAT THE HEATWAVE….

Remember, to help prevent heat exhaustion:
  • drink plenty of cold drinks, especially when exercising
  • take cool baths or showers
  • wear light-coloured, loose clothing
  • sprinkle water over skin or clothes
  • avoid the sun between 11am and 3pm
  • avoid excess alcohol
  • avoid extreme exercise
This will also prevent dehydration and help your body keep itself cool.
