Stay cool during the summer heat

Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) has reported its second heat-related death this summer.

Stay safe this summer and follow these tips from the CDC to prevent heat related illness: 

  • Stay Indoors- Stay in an air-conditioned place as much as possible. If your home does not have air conditioning, you may qualify for an emergency A/C window unit. To find out if you qualify, call DCHHS at 214-819-1976.
  • Limit Outdoor Activities- Consider exercising early in the morning or late in the evening to avoid peak temperatures. Try to find shaded areas to cool down when possible.
  • Stay hydrated- Drink plenty of water.
  • Check for updates- Check your local news for extreme heat alerts.
