With Georgia predicted to endure record breaking heat this week, it’s important to take steps to protect your health. According to the Red Cross, the most important thing you can do is stay hydrated. The average person needs 3/4 gallon of fluid per day, and water is the best choice. It’s also important to be able to recognize the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Please see the attached listing of signs and symptoms from the CDC (Center for Disease Control).
