This weekend we are looking at highs in the 90’s and sunny skies, and if you plan to spend a lot of time outside you could be at risk for a heat stroke. Here are common symptoms of heat stroke according to WedMD:

  • Throbbing headache
  • Dizziness
  • Not sweating, despite the high heat
  • Hot, dry skin
  • Muscle cramps
  • Nausea
  • Rapid shallow breathing
  • Rapid heartbeat

There are some ways you can avoid the threat of a heat stroke. Here is what the Mayo Clinic recommends:

  • Wear loose fitting breathable clothing
  • Put on sunscreen to avoid sun burn
  • Drink plenty of fluids. Water is the best.
  • Take it easy. Especially during the hottest part of the day

If you think someone is having a heat stroke here is how to treat it:

  • Move the person to a cool place
  • Remove unnecessary clothing
  • Cool the person’s body using cold water in a spray bottle or sponge
  • Apply ice packs to the person’s body
  • Make sure the person has lots of water and is able to drink

Stay safe and enjoy your weekend!
