As kids prepare for the start of another school year, many of them are also preparing for activities like football and marching band. And Michelle Davison with the Local Red Cross Chapter says that means they’ll be spending time outdoors in this extreme heat. So…what can parents do to ensure their kids are “heat-safe?” Davison says, first and foremost, make sure they stay hydrated. They should also be wearing the proper type of clothing…and take frequent breaks to cool off. It also helps if adults — and the kids themselves — learn to recognize the signs of heat-related emergencies. Davison says those usually start with heat cramps, which can progress to heat stroke if not properly treated.
