• Try to schedule outdoor activities in the coolest part of the day. Morning-time temperatures in East Texas are still typically in the upper 70s (and sometimes even higher), so do not throw all caution to the wind. If you become lightheaded, confused, weak and faint, get in a cool area and rest.
• Provide plenty of fresh water for your pets and leave it in a shady area.
Hopefully these tips will help ensure that we all have a safe and enjoyable summer.
