Heat Stress Prevention
See the last four weeks of "Fire Talk" on the city's website for tips on avoiding Heat Stress by the Hibbing Fire Department.
Remember that extreme heat is a real concern that can cause serious health problems like exhaustion, heat stroke, cramps, sunburn and rashes.
This week, take precautions to avoid heat-related illnesses. Make sure to drink more fluids; avoid alcoholic and sugary drinks; wear lightweight, light colored and loosely fitting clothing; limit outdoor activity to the morning or evening and stay in an air-conditioned place during the afternoon heat.
