California prepares for dangerous heatwave ahead of Fourth of July: What you need to know!

Below are some additional tips to help you stay safe from extreme heat:

Stay Cool (During the Hottest Times of the Day):  

Stay Hydrated: 

  • Drink plenty of fluids, especially water, even when not thirsty; drink sports drinks (in moderation with water) to help replace electrolytes lost during exercise. 

Stay Connected:  

  • Californians are encouraged to check on their neighbors – call or visit vulnerable people, and offer to pick up groceries, medication, and other necessities. Older adults, young children and babies, people with chronic medical conditions and those who are pregnant are most vulnerable.

Stay Informed: 

  • Check the local news for weather forecasts, extreme heat alerts, and information about cooling centers.
