Staying cool in a heatwave - Information Guide - added on 24/10/2016
We all look forward to ‘a good summer’, even though we’re
quite often disappointed! But very high temperatures and
humidity can present a risk to health, and older people
can be particularly susceptible to heat-related illness. It’s
important to remember that high temperatures in the UK
can be just as dangerous as high temperatures abroad. And
don’t get caught out during unseasonably warm weather, as
temperatures can soar as early as April.
Inside this guide, you’ll find some helpful tips on how to
protect yourself from the heat, how to recognise heatrelated
illness, and what to do if someone shows signs of it.
