- 49th Wing officials offer the following tips to avoid heat and sun-related illnesses during the Community Day:
Don't get too much sun
- Sunburn: Redness and pain. Severe cases may include swelling of skin, blisters, fever and headache
- Heat cramps: Painful spasms usually in muscles of legs and abdomen, heavy sweating.
- Heat exhaustion: Heavy sweating and weakness. Skin may turn cold, pale and clammy. Fainting and vomiting may occur.
Heat or sun stroke: Skin will become hot and dry. Pulse will become rapid and strong and body temperature rises.
- Drink Water - We suggest drinking at least a cup of water every 30 minutes. Alcohol is not a good beverage choice to replace lost body water.
- Wear Appropriate Clothing and Sunscreen - We suggest wearing lightweight, light-colored and loose-fitting clothing. Use SPF 15 or higher sunscreen, and to apply it 30 minutes before going outdoors. Re-apply often.
