Contra Costa Health Reminds Residents to Take Precautions During Heat Wave

With temperatures above 100 degrees expected across much of Contra Costa County this week, residents are advised to take steps to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Contra Costa Health (CCH) recommends staying inside in an air-conditioned space during the hottest parts of the week, if possible.

“Extreme heat can be dangerous, especially when it goes on for several days in a row,” said Dr. Ori Tzvieli, Contra Costa County Health Officer. “People should take precautions and factor heat safety into their plans this week, especially with July 4th celebrations coming up.”

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for most of the Bay Area from Tuesday morning through Saturday evening, with temperatures in central and eastern Contra Costa County forecast to exceed 105 degrees on some days. The NWS said the heat wave could even continue after Saturday.

Other tips to stay  healthy and safe in hot weather include staying hydrated – drink more water than you think you need, even if you don’t feel thirsty. Avoid sugary or alcoholic beverages.

People who must go out should avoid strenuous activity if possible, such as running or heavy exercise, during the hottest parts of a day. Take frequent breaks, stay in shade when possible, and wear appropriate clothing. Light-colored, loose-fitting clothes with a hat and sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher is recommended.

Older adults and young children, particularly infants younger than 6 months, are particularly vulnerable to overheating in hot weather – check on them frequently to ensure they are safe and healthy. Never leave children, elderly people or pets unattended in enclosed vehicles even for a short time.

People without cooling in their homes are encouraged to go places with air conditioning, such as shopping malls, libraries or cooling centers. When at home, you can keep your home cooler by drawing shades and blinds and keeping windows and doors shut, and by keeping off the stove and other electrical appliances when possible.

People who are experiencing homelessness and need help can be connected with services by calling 211 anywhere in Contra Costa County.

Anyone concerned about heat-related illness should contact their healthcare providers or, if it’s an emergency, call 911.
