Please ensure that all family members are aware of the consequences of high heat & humidity, and take the following precautions:

  • Stay hydrated. Drink water even if you don�t feel thirsty
  • Frequently check on elders, the young and sick persons, as they are more susceptible to suffer the effects of extreme heat & humidity
  • Slow down, stay indoors if possible, and avoid strenuous exercises during the hottest part of the day
  • Take frequent breaks if working outdoors
  • Be aware of the signs of Heat Cramps, Heat Exhaustion and Heat Stroke
