Being a Heat Buddy during hot summer months only takes a few moments each day and may save someone's life.
Make sure your Heat Buddy is in a cool room and using their air conditioner, or help them find a cool place to stay.
- Look out for elderly friends, neighbors or relatives who may not notice the signs of heat stress.
- Check on those who may not have or be able to use air conditioning.
- Never leave seniors, young children or pets in a parked car even for a few minutes - you could put them at risk for heat-related illness or even death.
- Be sure to lock your car when at home to keep children from climbing in and becoming trapped.
