With temperatures on the rise, the Forsyth County Fire Department urges residents to take extra precautions to help avoid heat-related illness, injury and death. 1. Never leave a child or pet unattended in a vehicle - not even for a minute. 2. If you see a child or pet unattended in a hot vehicle, call 911 immediately. 3. Teach children that cars are not a play area. 4. Stay indoors as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun. 5. Limit outdoor activity to morning and evening hours. 6. When working in extreme heat, use a buddy system and take frequent breaks. 7. Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing. 8. Protect face and head by wearing a wide-brimmed hat. 9. Stay properly hydrated.
