Huron County Health Unit Reminds You To Stay Safe In Heat

Huron County | by Peter Jackson  

As a heat warning is issued for Huron County, health officials have tips for avoiding sickness, exhaustion.

The Huron County Health Unit is advising you to try to stay cool, now that Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for our area.

The federal weather agency predicts daytime temperatures will be close to 30, with humidex readings hitting 40 or higher through Saturday.

Public Health Inspector Chris Boyes advises that if you're going to be outside, to make sure you bring water with you -- water is the best way to cool down internally.

Also he recommends wearing light, loose-fitting clothing, and seek an air conditioned place like a mall or public building if the heat starts to get to you.

The Health Unit also stresses the importance of never leaving a child or pet in an unattended vehicle, in which temperatures can go far higher than what they are outside.
