Stephen Sandy WolfAccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heat stroke occurs when the body is unable to regulate its temperature. The body's temperature rises rapidly, sweating mechanism fails, and the body is unable to cool down.

Do you know the signs of heat stroke? While warning signs may vary, symptoms may include:

An extremely high body temperature (above 103 degrees Fahrenheit);
Red, hot, and dry skin (no sweating);
Rapid, strong pulse; and
Dizziness.

According to the CDC, if someone experiences signs of a heat stroke, have someone else call for immediate medical assistance while you begin cooling the person by:

Getting him or her to a shady area; and/or
Immersing the person in a tub of cool water, placing him or her in a cool shower, or spraying the person with cool water from a garden hose.

Be sure to monitor the person’s body temperature, and continue cooling efforts until the body temperature drops to 101-102 degrees Fahrenheit. If emergency medical personnel are delayed, call the hospital emergency room for further instructions. Don’t give the victim fluids to drink.
If emergency treatment isn’t provided, heat stroke can cause death or permanent disability. To learn more about this and other heat-related illnesses, visit the CDC website.2 weeks ago

Happy Friday! Please remember these big-heat dangers:

1) Cars heat up fast: please don't leave animals or small children in a car -- even with a cracked window. Temperatures inside a car can go into the mid-100's!!!

2) Drink often. The heat can lead to rapid dehydration and depletes your energy faster.

3) Check on the elderly and infirm. These friends and neighbors need your help keeping cool and hydrated.

Have a great weekend!

Today marks the 11th anniversary of the line of duty death of Lt. Peter Lund, who gave his life fighting a stubborn attic fire on Longacre Avenue in Woodmere.

Pete "the Vulcan" Lund was a Lt. in an elite FDNY rescue unit (Rescue2), an Ex-Chief in the Woodmere Fire Department, and a member in the Kentland FD. His passion for teaching was known across the country and we in the Woodmere Fire Department were blessed to have him in our ranks.

Pete will always be missed and will never be forgotten. As you go through your day, please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers. ... See MoreSee Less
