Read Time:1 Minute, 23 Second

This week’s much-discussed heat wave is still expected to come early and stay through at least Friday. Summer heat is nothing new to Michigan residents, but this kind of heat wave, this early in the year, and this lengthy is exceptional. It is therefore advisable to be aware of the safety measures to take now, before the temperature rises.

Important Safety Measures:

Avert Outdoor Activities When It’s Hotest Outside:

  • Avoid going outside during the warmest portion of the day, or postpone your activities.
  • The heat and humidity will make the “feels like” temperature close to 100 degrees.
  • In high temperatures, people of all ages and health conditions are susceptible to heat-related disorders.

If There Is No Avoiding Outdoor Plans:

  • Put on airy, light attire.
  • Take regular breaks in cool, shaded settings.
  • Water is the best way to stay hydrated.

Get Ready for Comfortable Evenings:

  • There won’t likely be much to no reprieve from the low 70s during the course of the night.
  • If you or someone you know doesn’t have air conditioning, find cooling facilities and make plans to utilize them.

Safeguard Vulnerable People and Pets:

  • In extremely hot weather, don’t walk dogs or leave them outside for long periods of time.
  • Make sure your pets have access to lots of water and cool places.
  • Never, even for brief periods of time, leave kids or pets unattended in cars.

Since there will be a lot of heat this wave, planning is essential. On its website, the National Weather Service offers a wealth of information about how to be safe in extremely hot weather. Remain calm, stay educated, and look out for one another.
