Kansas City experiencing extreme heat this summer

By | August 23, 2010

Kansas City residents have been encouraged by city officials to take extra caution this summer due to extreme heat conditions. The city warns to be on the lookout for those most at risk for health problems related to the heat, including infants, the elderly, the disabled and ill and the economically disadvantaged. Make sure to drink plenty of water and attempt to stay cool. Many cooling stations have been set up throughout the city. If you find someone suffering from heat exhaustion, the KCMO Health Department advises calling 911 for an emergency and attempting to cool the person off by removing excess clothing and placing cold towels around the neck and armpits.
