Summer Heat Arrives

By  | 

It was a hot one in parts of Nebraska Monday, as temperatures hit 100 in some places.

In Lincoln, kids out of school for the first week took advantage of the warm temps and hit the pool.

The Lancaster County Health Department wants to remind us of a few safety tips when out in the heat. Drink lots of water, take some time in the shade, take breaks, and wear sunscreen. Dermatologists say we should wear at least an SPF 15, and we need to re-apply throughout the day.

Stop exercising if you feel dizzy, faint, or nauseated. These can be early warning signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

Wear loose-fitting, light colored clothing as well as a hat and sunglasses.
