Council says keep cool and carry on

The MET Office has forecast high temperatures across the South East over the next few days, which may leave some people vulnerable. Fareham Borough Council is asking residents to take note of the following advice to keep safe.

How to keep cool:

Cllr Trevor Cartwright, Executive Member for Health and Public Protection at Fareham Borough Council, said: “With temperatures potentially reaching highs of thirty-nine degrees celsius today we are asking residents to use common sense and be cautious when outside in the heat.

“It is especially important to drink plenty of water, keep in the shade and be aware of the symptoms of heat stroke, these include: headaches, thirst, loss of appetite and pale or clammy skin in adults and may include sleepiness in children. If this occurs, move into a cool place and drink plenty of water.”


ENDS
