Tips on Handling the Heat



The Apache Junction Police Department would like to remind everyone of important safety measures to deal with the hot weather. Now that it is here, here are some things to remember:

  • Water, water, and more water! Stay reasonably hydrated.
  • Avoid alcohol. This will dehydrate you quickly.
  • Wear lightweight, light colored clothing.
  • Use sunscreen of at least sun protection factor (SPF) 30. Reapply ever two hours.
  • Protect your eyes. Wear sunglasses with adequate ultraviolet blocking protection.
  • Slow down and avoid strenuous activity when it is very hot. If you are going to exercise or some other action, do it early in the morning.
  • Check on elderly residents who do not have adequate air conditioning.
  • Do not leave children alone.
  • Make sure your pets have plenty of fresh, drinking water and shade to avoid the sun.
  • Do not leave your child or your pet in a hot car.
  • Be aware of heat stroke and other heat-related illnesses.
