How to stay cool in heatwave

We have complied some advice to ensure everyone stays safe cool and comfortable in the weather reducing risks to health.

Shut windows and pull down the shades when it is hotter outside. Open windows for ventilation when it is cooler.

Avoid the heat: stay out of the sun and avoid going out between 11am and 3pm (the hottest part of the day).

Wear loose, cool clothing, and a hat if you go outdoors.

Have cool baths or showers, and splash yourself with cool water.

Drink cold drinks regularly, such as water and fruit juice. Avoid tea, coffee and alcohol.

Plan ahead to make sure you have enough supplies, such as food, water and any medications you need.

Check up on friends, relatives and neighbours who may be less able to look after themselves.
