HEALTH OFFICIALS REMIND RESIDENTS, VISITORS TO STAY HEALTHY, SAFE WHEN TEMPERATURES RISE

Full Story
The Florida Department of Health in Collier County reminds residents and visitors to be aware of the warning signs of heat exhaustion and to protect against dehydration. Heat exhaustion can develop after exposure to high temperatures and dehydration from not drinking enough fluids or replacing fluids that contain salt after sweating. Those most prone to heat exhaustion are older adults, people with high blood pressure, and people working or exercising in a hot environment. If you work outdoors, it is critical you remain aware of the heat index and take appropriate precautions to stay healthy and safe.
