Staying safe in extreme heat

Health

The most important thing to do Wednesday if you are going to be outside is to just listen to your body if you’re feeling dizzy or nauseous those are signs you could be getting sick from a heat related illness.

First responders have been busy with heat-related medical calls this week.

The Agawam Fire Department told 22News they had to rush at least one person to Baystate Medical Center as a result of the heat.

Experts are urging you to stay indoors with the AC for as long as you can Wednesday.

If you don’t have air conditioning there are cooling centers in the area you can go to.

Stay hydrated Wednesday, and replenish any minerals your body might be losing.

It’s also important to remember that this weather can be especially dangerous for people with breathing problems.
