Extreme Heat St. Louis

St. Louis is under extreme heat warnings this week! You can get heat sickness when your body can’t compensate for the heat and properly cool you down. When the St. Louis humidity is high, sweat won’t evaporate as fast as it should. This keeps your body from releasing heat as quickly as it needs to.

 Heat-related deaths and illnesses are very serious, but easily preventable. Keep you and your family safe this week by preparing for the dangerously hot temperatures.

Cooling St. Louis

Everyone should take these steps to prevent heat-related sicknesses and deaths:

  • Stay indoors with air conditioning as much as possible
  • Drink more water than usual, even if you’re not thirsty
  • Take cold showers or baths to cool down
  • Avoid using your stove and oven to cook – it will make you and your home hotter
  • Don’t rely on a fan as your main method to cool off during an extreme heat warning
  • Lower your thermostat temperature a couple more degrees than usual 
  • Never leave children or pets in the car
  • Throw a water bottle in the freezer to use as an ice pack later

Air Conditioning St. Louis

Stay in air conditioning as much as possible. Air Conditioners are the #1 protective factor against sicknesses and deaths from the heat.

If your home doesn’t have air conditioning during these dangerously high temperatures, you can reduce your risk by spending time in public facilities with air conditioning and using AC in vehicles.
