Tips for Managing Excessive Heat

• Watch for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke in yourself and others.
Call 911 immediately if you know someone who experiences symptoms.

• Do not leave children or people with mobility challenges in a parked car, even with the windows down. Call 911 immediately if you see unattended children in parked cars.

• King County animal control officers will respond to calls about animals in distress due to the heat. Call 911or 206-296-7387 for assistance.

• Drink plenty of water. Avoid dehydration, which can occur when relying on drinks with caffeine or high sugar levels. Also avoid alcohol.

• Rivers and lakes are still cold, even though it’s hot outside. That can sap even strong swimmers’ strength in a matter of minutes. Wear a personal flotation device and avoid alcohol. Learn more about water safety and drowning prevention.

Call 911 with any heat-related health concerns.
