GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – Summer heat waves can be dangerous and even life-threatening for those who don’t take proper precautions. Most heat disorders occur because a person is overexposed to heat or has over-exercised for their age and physical condition.
Here are four tips from AARP to keep cool this summer:
- Install window air conditions snugly; be sure to insulate them.
- Cover windows that let in hot sun with curtains, shades, or awnings.
- Keep storm windows up all year.
- Go to a designated public shelter if your home loses power during periods of extreme heat.
