With a heat wave expected for most of this week, many people want to get outside and enjoy the nice weather.
According to Environment and Climate Change Canada, Moose Jaw could experience temperatures in the mid-30s at least through Thursday.
However, when the mercury rises, it comes with health risks like dehydration and heat stroke.
“The heat is no joke. Going outside may seem really pleasant, but if it is too hot, it can be dangerous for your health,” said Dr. David Tor said.
Some of the symptoms you may suffer from dehydration or heat stroke may include dizziness, lightheadedness, and palpitations. Tor added that it is especially dangerous if a person begins to lose consciousness.
Torr said it’s also surprising how quickly symptoms can appear.
“It might be smaller than you think. It may take less than an hour for symptoms to appear. You get it within half an hour, and how much exposure, how hydrated, what you’re wearing, those are all important factors,” Tor said.
When you feel uncomfortable or uncomfortable, you should take precautions such as seeking a cool place and seeking medical attention if necessary.
Other precautions you can take include reducing your time in hot weather, wearing light clothing, and staying hydrated.
A warm environment can be incorporated into your home. If you don’t have air conditioning, find a cool place in the house, such as the basement. If not, find a store or civic facility that guarantees you have air conditioning.
You can help others by checking on friends and family who are sick or elderly because they cannot help themselves.
