Heat Safety

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- The weather's starting to heat up and with the summer sun comes a greater chance of getting heat stroke. 

Infants, the elderly, and people who work outside are the most at risk.

Heat stroke is when your body reaches 104 degrees and is unable to cool down. This can be deadly. 

So health officials want to remind you to drink plenty of water.  Wear light clothing. Remember to take breaks in the shade, and look for signs of heat stroke: including headaches, muscle cramps, and dizziness.
