Heat Health Alert – OCC have asked us to share the government’s advice (links below) on staying safe following the Amber Heat Warning from Sunday 17th July to Tuesday 19th July.
The Met Office advice is:
Look out for others, especially older people, young children and babies and those with underlying health conditions. Close curtains on rooms that face the sun to keep indoor spaces cooler and remember it may be cooler outdoors than indoors. Drink plenty of fluids and avoid excess alcohol, dress appropriately for the weather and slow down when it is hot.
Advice on how to reduce the risk can be obtained from the Heatwave Plan for England page, from your doctor or local chemist, or ring NHS 111.
