It’s been a wonderful summer so far. Hot humid weather, tornados, power outages, rain, wind and falling trees all have factored into our July somewhere in Prince Albert region. Thankfully there have been few serious emergencies and most of us have coped well with the hot humid weather. Summer is not over as the calendar turns to August. Remember these summer time actions: drink plenty of water, stay cool, wear and reapply sun screen often.

Those most vulnerable to heat related emergencies are the very young, our seniors or those not caring for themselves such homeless people. During these hot hot days we need to all spend more time in cool places. Such cool places might be window shopping at the local mall. Grab a book and doing some reading at the library. If you have air conditioning at home merely staying indoors.
