    Drink plenty of fluids, and try to stay in the shade or indoors as much as possible.

    If working outside, take frequent breaks, preferably in an air-conditioned space.

    Check on elderly neighbors and those with functional needs. Take pets indoors and make sure they have plenty of water.

    Never leave children or pets unattended in a vehicle.
