- Drink plenty of cool water! Drink before you become thirsty especially if you are sweating!

- Elderly people should take extra care. Check on your neighbours and friends.
- Stay indoors where it’s cool (malls, recreation centres, libraries). Schedule activities for early morning or late evening when it’s cooler.
