It’s important to remember that heat waves can be deadly, especially for the elderly and those living in urban areas, so it’s vital to follow safety tips.

On Tuesday, the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre released an extensive guide on how people in international cities can beat the heat. Some of the suggestions include remaining in an air-conditioned environment (if you can), drinking plenty of water, and avoiding alcohol and caffeine. If you do have to leave the house, the guide recommends reducing physical activity, taking more breaks from work, finding shade, and avoiding being outdoors during the hottest times of the day.
