Stay Safe During Extreme Heat

In Southern California, cooling centers are vital during the hot summer months, when the heat increases between mid-May and September.

Tips for Staying Cool This Summer

Try these simple tips to stay cool and safe during hot weather:

  • Wear lightweight, loose-fitting clothing. Natural fibers, like cotton, help your body breathe and cool down efficiently.
  • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Avoid alcohol, sugary drinks, and caffeinated drinks, which can dehydrate you.
  • Limit your outdoor activity to cooler times of the day, such as early mornings or late evenings. If you must be outdoors, seek shade and take frequent breaks. 
  • Use fans indoors and close your curtains or blinds to block the sun. Blocking the amount of sunlight entering your home will help keep it cooler and prevent rotating outages as electricity usage increases during these months.
  • Consider taking a shower or bath to lower your body temperature.

Always remember to check on those who may be more susceptible to heat-related illnesses, such as the elderly and young children.
