Summer Heat Safety

Your Cathedral City Fire Department firefighters wish you an enjoyable and safe summer.

Protect yourself from dehydration

• Hydrate early and throughout the day. Don’t wait until you are thirsty. 

• Drink water or sports drinks frequently to replenish your body fluids and restore your electrolytes.

• Use a wide-brimmed shade hat.

• Wear sunscreen - SPF 15 + and UV protective eyewear.

• Conduct yard work, shopping or recreational activities (golf, hiking or tennis) during the coolest part of the day.

• Cool down, if you get overheated (cooling your core temperature is critical).

• Get into the shade or into an air-conditioned area; use wet towels to cool the skin; set under a fan, if possible, (the evaporative effect will cool you quicker), and drink cold water. 

• If you have dry skin, are not sweating, feel light-headed or dizzy, are confused and have a dry mouth or have an increased heart rate and labored breathing, call 9-1-1 for medical assistance.

For Emergencies Dial 9-1-1

 Your Safety is Our Business
