Canada Safety Council’s National Summer Safety Week ran from May 1st until the 7th but summer safety doesn’t end there.
While our weather is on the cooler side right now, summers can be sunny and hot.
The theme for the week was “Heat Stroke is No Joke.”
Before heat stroke sets in, someone who has been overexposed to the heat may show signs of heat exhaustion. They include nausea, headache, extreme thirst, dizziness and high body temperature.
A priority on hot days is to stay hydrated, wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing and shield your head from the sun.
