Heat precautions in your backyard

  • Water from the hose can burn your skin!
    Let the water coming out of the hose run for a few minutes before spraying kids or pets. And wait before filling up pools.
  • Some recommend letting sprinklers run for a few before letting kids play in them.
  • Wear shoes on pavers as these get blistering hot.

Heat precautions when outdoors

  • Drink a lot of water even if you don’t feel thirsty. Make sure your kids drink a lot of water even if they’re in the pool all day. They can still get dehydrated in the heat.
  • Wear a hat or in other words try to get your kids to keep one on! LoL
  • Try to stay under the shade of a tree or structure if you would be outside for a while.
  • Wear shoes to go outside even if it’s in your own backyard as cement and pavers can get burning hot and cause you serious pain – it will burn the soles of your feet. Pavers can get over 120° or more in the hottest time of the day.
  • Please keep this in mind as it also applies to dogs! Gets too hot for them to walk on it too. If you take them for a walk get them shoes like these.

Heat safety in your vehicle

  • Don’t leave kids or pets in the car even with windows open! It’s a death trap. Not even for a few minutes as temperatures inside the vehicle get 20 degrees hotter than outdoor temperatures!
