Houston Fire Department Stresses Safety Measures to Avoid Heat Related Medical Emergencies
With the extremely high temperatures in the Houston area and an increase of temperature related EMS calls, the Houston Fire Department stresses the importance of taking safety measures when outdoors to avoid heat related medical emergencies.
Before conducting outdoors activities and feeling thirsty, drink plenty of water and electrolyte-replacement beverages.
Avoid beverages or food sources with caffeine, alcohol or large amounts of sugar because these can actually result in the loss of body fluid.
Conduct outdoor work or exercise in the early morning or evening when it is cooler.
Individuals unaccustomed to working or exercising in a hot environment need to start slowly and gradually increase heat exposure over several weeks.
Take frequent breaks in the shade or in an air-conditioned facility.
A wide-brimmed, loose-fitting hat that allows ventilation helps prevent sunburn and heat-related emergencies. A tight-fitting baseball cap is not the best choice when conducting strenuous outdoors activities. Sunscreen also helps protect injury from the sun's rays and reduces the risk of sunburn.
Wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing that permits the evaporation of perspiration. Do not leave children, senior citizens or pets unattended in a vehicle.
For additional summer safety tips, please visit the HFD website at www.houstonfire.org
From June 1-25, 2012 the Houston Fire Department has responded to 77 heat related incidents. During the same time period in 2011 we had 140 and in 2010 we had 88. These numbers are from the original call type information from 911, so there may be additional heat related calls that came in as such things as chest pains or sick person. The number of heat related calls HFD responds to during the summer months varies depending on the weather conditions, for example in 2010 there were 377 between June 1 and August 31, and in 2011 there were 579 between June 1 and August 31.

Be Prepared for Hurricane Season
Free Workshop Saturday, June 9, 2012
Hurricane Season is here and runs from June 1 to November 30. The City of Houston Office of Emergency Management urges Houstonians to prepare for hurricanes, tropical storms and other emergencies by following a few key steps.
Build a Kit - Have a disaster supply kit with enough supplies to last you and your family for 5 - 7 days; the kit should include food, medications, water and other basic necessities
Make a Plan - Have an emergency plan for your family and check to make sure that your workplace, children's school and other places you frequent have emergency plans in place; be sure to practice your family's emergency plan before disasters happen
Be Informed - Remember, during and after a hurricane, electricity and internet connections may be unavailable, so have a way to stay informed, including access to a NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Weather Alert radio or a hand-crank or battery-powered radio
Know Your Neighbor - Neighbors can be a great source of help before and after a disaster, so get to know your neighbors, particularly those who are elderly or who may not be able to prepare for disasters by themselves; Houstonians know how to work together to be ready for disasters
