Heat stroke


WHAT IT IS: A very dangerous rise in your body temperature. It can be deadly.


WARNING SIGNS: A body temperature of 103 or higher; red, hot, and dry skin; a fast pulse; headache; dizziness; nausea or vomiting; confusion; and passing out.


WHAT TO DO: Call 911 immediately. Move to a cool, shady place, take off or loosen heavy clothes. If possible, douse yourself with cool water, or put cloths soaked with cool water on your wrists, ankles, armpits, and neck to lower your temperature. Try and see if you can safely swallow water or sports drinks. Note: If you are caring for someone else who has heat stroke, only give them water or drinks if they are awake and can swallow.


Table top activities and bean bag baseball practice everyday!


Please know that in the event of severe weather, some activities may be canceled and rescheduled for safety precautions.
