High temperatures can be hazardous for many people, especially for the elderly and those with medical conditions. Heat-related injuries such as heatstroke, an illness that occurs when the body can no longer regulate its temperature, can strike fast and pose life-threatening consequences.

Please take the following precautionary measures to decrease the risk of heat-related illness:

  • Stay hydrated throughout the day.
  • Stay indoors if possible.
  • Apply sunscreen if you are planning to be outdoors.
  • Take frequent rest breaks in shaded or air-conditioned areas.
  • Avoid leaving people or pets in enclosed vehicles.

What You Can Do to Help Conserve Energy at Work and at Home:

  • Set thermostats no lower than 78 degrees.
  • Use electric fans instead of air conditioning when practical.
  • Turn off unused appliances and switch off lights when leaving a room.
  • Operate energy-intensive appliances during early morning or evening hours.
  • Model energy conservation behaviors and encourage your friends, family and members of your community to do the same at work and at home.
