[ARCHIVED] Safety Tips for Summer Heat

Safety Tips

During the summer months, temperatures in Illinois can reach unsafe levels. Avoid heat stroke and other heat-related injury by practicing the following:

  • drink plenty of fluids
  • stay in the shade or indoors as much as possible
  • take frequent breaks (in an air-conditioned space if possible) while working outside
  • check on elderly neighbors and those with functional needs
  • take pets indoors and make sure they have plenty of water
  • never leave children or pets unattended in a vehicle

Those who do not have access to air conditioning are encouraged to take advantage of cooling centers throughout Cook County.
