Prolonged exposure combined with physical activity could cause heat exhaustion and even heat stroke. The elderly, the very young, the sick, and people with heart conditions are most at risk in extreme heat. Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing, as it reflects heat and sunlight and helps your body stay cooler. Drink plenty of liquids, preferably water, even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid alcoholic beverages. Try to get out of the heat for a few hours each day and into an air conditioned place or swimming pool. Reduce, eliminate, or reschedule strenuous activities to the coolest times of the day. If you must be outside, reduce your activities.
