Summer is normally a crazy time of year for many families in Concord. Whether it’s a family reunion, a long-awaited vacation or any host of other exciting activities, summer not only brings about crazy schedules, but that dreaded Concord heat as well.

- Stay in air conditioning as much as you can. Of course, outdoor activities make this hard, but if you are able to take a quick break and utilize an air conditioned building at a park or a vehicle’s air conditioning, do so.
- Drink plenty of fluids. Sip on your drink even if you don't feel thirsty, as thirst can be an early indicator of dehydration. If you begin noticing muscle cramps, take a breather as it can also be an early sign of dehydration or another heat-related illness.
- Take precautions when scheduling outdoor activities. Any kind of workout or athletic practices should be completed earlier or later in the day when the Concord temperatures are lower.
- Dress to stay cooler in hot temperatures. Light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are your best choice.
- Keep your shower or bath a little cooler than typical. It can help you cool down a bit quicker so you can get back to enjoying your home’s air conditioning.
