Taking care of yourself and others in very hot weather
Tuesday 30 June 2009
Most of us enjoy sunny weather, but extreme heat can seriously damage your health. During a heatwave, when temperatures stay really high day after day, it can sometimes be fatal.
The Department of Health has issued the leaflet at the foot of this page to help you look after yourself and others during a heatwave.
The leaflet tells you:
- What sort of health problems can arise, and how to recognise their symptoms
- Who is most at risk
- What precautions you can take
- How you can help others
- Where you can get further information
