CCH Offers Hot Weather Safety Tips

August 29, 2013

Because of extremely high temperatures across North Dakota including Barnes County this week, the state health department is urging everyone to take precautions to protect their health, said Dr. Terry Dwelle, state health officer for the North Dakota Department of Health.
The National Weather Service predicts temperatures in the high 80s and low 90s through Saturday, with the Wednesday heat index value at 95.
"High temperatures for a prolonged period of time like we are experiencing can be dangerous," said Dwelle. "Anyone can suffer from heat-related illness, but some people are at a higher risk, especially infants and children to age 4, people 65 and older, people who are overweight and those who have health conditions or take certain medications. In addition, those who exert themselves during work or exercise need to make sure they don't become dehydrated."
