Here's some essential advice to keep your cool

Evesham Editorial 12th Aug, 2022   0

WITH the Met Office warning of a 90 per cent probability the criteria for a Heat-Health Alert will be met across England until Sunday (August 14), first aid and health response charity St John Ambulance has issued simple – potentially lifesaving – advice for staying safe and cool.

Dr Lynn Thomas, St John Ambulance’s Medical Director, said: “Once again as we face several days of potential heatwave conditions, we at St John want to ensure that everyone has the information they need at their fingertips to stay safe and well in this unusually hot and dry weather.

“I appeal to everyone, but especially families with youngsters or the elderly as members, to keep an eye on the ongoing weather forecasts and on Met Office alerts.

“Many conditions do not need to result in a trip to hospital if you know some basic first aid techniques, and take care to wear a hat, use sun cream and stay hydrated with water.




“Please enjoy the hot weather but also make sure you take the necessary steps to avoid any associated health issues.”
