CVFD Offers Tips During Heat Wave

As the temperatures increase throughout the region, reaching temperatures in excess of 100 degrees during a heat wave, The Chino Valley Fire District urges residents to take precautions that will help prevent heat-related illness.

Stay cool and hydrated:

  • Spend the warmest part of the day in air-conditioned buildings.
  • Limit outdoor activity, especially midday when it is hottest, and avoid direct sunlight.
  • Drink more water than usual.  Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink water.  Chino Events in summer

  • Dress in loose-fitting, lightweight, and light-colored clothes.
  • Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles.
  • Check on at-risk friends, family and neighbors at least twice a day.

Swimming pool safety:

  • Have an adult designated to supervise children whenever they are in or around water.
  • Remove children from water for any distractions such as a phone call or to use the restroom.
