Keep cool. Spend as much time as you can in cooler surroundings, such as a cooler room in your home, an air conditioned shopping mall, senior center, public library or movie.
Watch pets, kids. Never leave pets or young children in a car even with the windows cracked.
Cooling with fans. Fans can draw cool air into your home at night or help to provide good indoor air circulation during the day. Air movement reduces heat stress by helping to remove extra body heat.
Baths and showers. Cool baths or showers (with water temperature around 75 degrees) provide amazing relief from the heat. Cool water removes extra body heat 25 times faster than cool air.
Clothing. Wear as little as possible when you are at home. Lightweight, light colored, loose fitting clothing is more comfortable. Cotton is very comfortable. Wear a hat or use an umbrella to protect your head and neck when outdoors.
