Extremely hot weather will continue...


---------------------------------------------------------------------
==discussion==
very warm air from the Desert Southwest of the United States has
moved into the b.C. Interior. Afternoon temperatures from the mid
30's to 40 degrees will continue through Wednesday. Temperatures may
exceed 40 degrees in several regions. A cooling trend will occur
later in the week.

This bulletin will be updated at 11 am Sunday.

Coping with the heat.

There are many symptoms of heat-related illness, including thirst,
dizziness, confusion, weakness and fainting/collapsing. Medical
health officers are reminding residents to protect themselves from
the heat by staying hydrated, keeping cool and checking on others.

1. Stay hydrated.

- Drink cool beverages (preferably water) irrespective of your
activity Intake. Don't wait until you are thirsty.

- If your doctor generally limits the amount of fluid you drink or
has you on water pills, ask about increasing the amount of water you
can drink while the weather is hot.

2. Keep cool.

- Spend at least several hours each day in an air-conditioned
facility (such as a shopping centre, Library, community centre or
restaurant).

- Use public splash pools, water Parks or pools or take a cool Bath
or shower.

- At current temperatures, fans alone are not effective. Applying
cool water mist or wet towels to your body prior to sitting in front
of a fan is a quick way to cool off.

- Wear loose, light-weight clothing. Protect yourself from the sun by
wearing a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses.

- Keep your home cool. Open windows, close shades, use an air
conditioner and prepare meals that do not require an oven.

- Avoid sunburn, stay in the shade or use sunscreen with spf 30 or
more.

- Avoid tiring work or exercise in the heat. If you must exercise,
drink two to four glasses of non-alcoholic fluids each hour.

- Never leave children or pets alone in a parked car. Temperatures
can rise to 52 c within 20 minutes in an enclosed vehicle when the
outside temperature is 34 c. Leaving the car windows slightly open or
"cracked" will not keep the inside of the vehicle at a safe
temperature.

3. Check in on others.

- Check regularly on people living alone who may be at high risk of
severe heat related illness. This includes seniors, those who are
unable to leave their homes and anyone who may not be spending at
least several hours every day in air conditioned places. - If they
are unwell, move them to a cool shady spot, help them get hydrated
and call for medical assistance if required.

4. Get informed.

- Check the local news for health and safety updates.

- For more information on heat-related illness, call healthlink BC
at 811.

- Contact your local government to find out what services (such as
air conditioned buildings and public splash parks) are available in
your area.

Hot, dry weather can lead to higher fire risk. Please see the b.C.
Wildfire management branch website at bcwildfire.CA for more details
and fire safety tips.
