DEFEAT THE HEAT

The Southern Nevada Health District says triple-digit temperatures are common between June and September in Southern Nevada. Everyone should take precautions to reduce their risk of heat-related illnesses. High summer temperatures can be especially harmful to older adults, people with chronic medical conditions, and children. Residents and visitors who may not be used to the high temperatures should use precautions. The SNHD says the following steps can help minimize the risk of heat-related illness and injury:

  • Plan activities earlier in the morning or later in the evening.
  • Dress in light, loose fitting clothes.
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect the face and use sunscreen.
  • If unaccustomed to working or exercising in a hot environment, start slowly and gradually increase the pace.
  • Avoid being out in the sun for extended periods.
  • When planning extended outdoor activity, bring an adequate supply of water. Drink plenty of water at regular intervals – regardless of activity level.
  • Avoid alcohol or liquids that contain high amounts of sugar.
  • Plan well-balanced light meals.
  • Check the local weather forecasts and plan activities accordingly.
  • Check on the status of homebound neighbors and relatives.

Caution: People who have epilepsy or heart, kidney, or liver disease; are on fluid-restrictive or low-salt diets; or have a problem with fluid retention should consult a doctor before increasing liquid intake or changing what they eat and drink.

People at greatest risk of experiencing heat-related illness:

  • Older people 65 years old or older may not compensate for heat stress efficiently and are less likely to sense and respond to change in temperature.
  • Infants and children up to 4 years old are sensitive to the effects of high temperatures and rely on others to regulate their environments and provide adequate liquids.
  • People who are overweight may be prone to heat sickness because of their tendency to retain more body heat.
  • People who are physically ill, especially with heart disease or high blood pressure, may be affected by extreme heat.
  • People who take certain medications, such as for depression, insomnia, or poor circulation, may be affected by extreme heat.
  • People who overexert themselves may become dehydrated and susceptible to heat sickness. Take caution if you work outdoors, exercise outside or use drugs or alcohol.

More information on extreme heat is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website.
