The temperature will be over 100 degrees again today, and for most of this week. It is encouraged that you bring ice and a personal towel. Putting the towel around your neck and armpits (where the big blood vessels are in the body) are good ways to bring down your body’s core temperature. And hydrate with electrolytes instead of plain water! Remember: once you’re thirsty, you are already dehydrated. The best way to avoid heat exhaustion is prevention. Hydrate with electrolytes (i.e. Pedialite, coconut water or watered-down low sugary drinks, etc.) gradually through the day and limit your time in direct sunlight.
