Staying Safe in the Heat

It continues to be hot in central North Carolina, and WakeMed Emergency Departments are continuing to see an increased number of patients due to heat related illness and injuries.  We’ve blogged on this topic before, but thought it would be helpful to share information included on Wake County Government’s ReadyWake site.  The site includes common sense rules to protect yourself from the heat.

ReadyWake is also a great site to add to your favorites.  On the site, there is good information about disaster preparedness and how to protect yourself during extreme weather.  You can also follow @ReadyWake on Twitter.
