    • Be aware of the heat and modify your activities appropriately.
    • Pay attention to your hydration status and drink plenty of fluids.
    • Electricity and water do not mix. Don’t handle or plug in electrical appliances unless you’re completely dry.
    • If you or someone you know doesn’t have air conditioning, choose places to go to for relief from the heat, such as schools, libraries or malls.

    Be smart about energy use:

    • Adjust your thermostat as high as comfortably possible in the summer.
    • Close blinds during the warmest times of the day to keep the heat out.
    • Turn off the lights and use energy efficient light bulbs that give off less heat in the home.
    • Run ceiling fans to counterclockwise to push cool air down into living spaces. 
    • Wait until the evening to use heat-producing appliances, like the oven or dryer.
