Dealing With The Heat

Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller urges residents to keep an eye on themselves and their neighbors as we go through a period of high heat and humidity. She says some people are more vulnerable including; older adults, infants and children, those with chronic heart or lung issues, the overweight, and those with disabilities. She says it goes without saying that leaving people or pets in a car isn’t a good idea. She says drink plenty of water, dress in light-colored and loose-fitting clothes, and try to stay cool. She says keep drapes drawn and use fans if you don’t have air conditioning. She says you can go to a mall, the library or shopping centers that do have air conditioning if you don’t. It’s also advised that you make sure your pets are well hydrated.
