This weekend will see the hottest temperatures of the year in the Tulsa area. Highs are expected to be 100, with a heat index well into triple digits. Adam Paluka with EMSA reminds people to have a plan to deal with the heat. He says the most important thing is to pre-hydrate…that means start drinking water well before you go outside to get your body ready to deal with the heat.
When outside, continue drinking water. Also, take frequent breaks in a shady area, wear light colored loose clothing, and a wide-brimmed hat to keep the sun off your head and face.
