2.      Avoid the heat

- Dress appropriately, and use handheld fans to lower body temperature

- On sunny days, try to limit the amount of time spent outdoors


3.      Take special care when inside the car, where temperatures tend to rise easily

- Avoid spending long periods in the car during the day
