Cool Tips For Hot Weather
Monday, July 16th, 2012
Boy is it hot outside! Below are some tips to stay cool and safe from the Red Cross:
- Never leave children in a vehicle for any period of time during heat waves. The temperature inside a car can increase 19 degrees in 10 minutes, and it will continue to rise.
- Check on family, friends and neighbors, especially those who live alone or who do not have air conditioning. Are we ever lucky to have air conditioning at Gulf Gate! If your air conditioning is not working properly please the office and let us know.
- Stay out of the sun if possible, especially in the middle of the day. Exposure to direct sunlight can increase the heat index by 15 degrees.
- Drink plenty of fluids, but leave the alcohol and caffeine behind. Drink hydrating liquids regularly, even if you donâ€™t feel thirsty.
Have a cool and safe summer from your staff at Gulf Gate Apartments!
