Hydrate to Stay Cool in a Heat Wave

With record-setting temperatures in the Pacific Northwest set to spread throughout the Great Plains this week, it’s time to revisit a few tested strategies to beat the heat. First, keep yourself (and your pets) hydrated, FEMA says. Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink water and other noncaffeinated soft drinks, regardless of your activity level — chug like your life depends on it. It might: Heat exhaustion and heat stroke can come on suddenly when the thermometer spikes, and they can have dangerous and debilitating effects. Take immediate action to cool off if you experience symptoms such as cramps, rapid pulse or dizziness. #BeatTheHeat
