The western U.S. is experiencing a severe heat wave. In Southern California and in Arizona, people have died as a result of the extreme heat. There are numerous warnings for everyone to stay inside as much as possible. DO NOT exercise outside. If you have to go outside, stay in the shade and drink a lot of water. Even inside, stay hydrated. Make sure your kids drink lots of water, no matter where they play.
Don’t let your children go outside to play. It’s not safe. Find things indoors for them to do.
Make sure your air conditioner is working properly. The leading cause of air conditioning problems is a dirty filter. Change the filter. If you’ve already done that, do not hesitate to file a Maintenance Request if you think your AC is not working properly. No one needs to be uncomfortable.
Be aware. Use common sense. Drink a lot of water. Don’t allow the heat cause you or your family members harm.
