It’s important to remember to drink water while in the Haliburton summer heat.

This tip is from Stuart McKinnon with Muskoka Paramedic Services who says hydration is key to staying healthy and prevent from heatstroke. McKinnon says signs that someone might be suffering from heat stroke include headaches, dizziness and fainting.

MicKinnon suggests if you have breathing problems, you should take it easy in the warm summer air.

He says sunscreen is important as well so you don’t get badly burned when you fall asleep on the beach or your cottage dock.

He adds if you do get burned, you might need to see your doctor depending on how bad it is.

He says if you see someone faint from being in the sun for a long time you should call 9-1-1 right away.
