Intense summer heat can be downright dangerous.

To help protect yourself, the American Red Cross advises:

Don't leave a pet or child in a closed car.

Drink fluids throughout the day, even if you're not thirsty. Skip drinks that contain alcohol or caffeine.

Eat frequent, small meals.

During the hottest times, stay indoors and postpone exercise.

Dress in lightweight, lightly-colored, loosely-fitting clothing.

If you must work outside, do so with a buddy.

Check frequently on family, friends, neighbors and pets.
