Stay Safe in Summer
Most of the time, high temperatures are welcome. Summer heat means trips to the beach and outdoor activities, but hot, sizzling heat, and humidity can be demanding.
The human body normally cools itself by sweating, but in extreme heat and humidity that's not enough. Perspiration doesn't evaporate easily on hot and humid days, and that means the body must work harder to maintain a normal temperature.
You may find yourself breathing rapidly, feeling weak, faint, confused, or you may have a headache. Heat stroke and heat exhaustion can follow and hot temperatures can also worsen existing health conditions.
