The Center for Disease Control reminds that even young and healthy people can get sick from the heat. They recommend that those at greatest risk for heat-related illnesses take the following precautions:

* Limit outdoor activity, especially midday when the sun is hottest.
* Stay in air-conditioned buildings as much as possible. Air-conditioning is the number one protective factor against heat-related illness and death. If a home is not air-conditioned, people can reduce their risk for heat-related illness by spending time in public facilities that are air-conditioned, and using air conditioning in vehicles.
* Do not rely on a fan as your primary cooling device during an extreme heat event.
* Drink more water than usual and don't wait until you're thirsty to drink.
* Check on a friend or neighbor and have someone do the same for you.
* Don't use the stove or oven to cook—it will make you and your house hotter.
* Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
