Norwalk FD Tips For Staying Cool This Summer

Be aware of the heat. Pay attention to it and modify your activities appropriately.



Pay attention to your hydration status and be sure to drink plenty of fluids. Avoid alcohol which can impair the body's ability to regulate its temperature.



Try to stay in relatively cool areas, even when outside. Many public places, such as the Norwalk libraries, stores and movie theatres, are air conditioned.



Avoid hot, enclosed places, such as cars. Never leave children or pets unattended in a car parked in the sun.



Eat well-balanced, light and regular meals.



Wear loose-fitting, lightweight and light-colored clothing.



Cover windows that receive a significant amount of sun with drapes or shades to help keep your house cool.



Weather stripping and proper insulation will keep cool air inside your home.



Listen to weather updates, during the summer months severe thunderstorms can develop quickly.
