Hot Weather Safety Guidelines on Rising Heat Waves

As the extreme heat wave persists, the Liason Group has issued routine guidelines for Kenyans and neighboring countries.

These guidelines coincide with an alert from the Kenya Meteorological Department which predicted the rising temperatures in Nairobi and the surrounding Central Kenya counties, reaching 31 degrees.

Guidelines To Safety

To safeguard against heat stress and heat stroke, consider the following precautions:

  1. Stay Hydrated: Carry a water bottle at all times and drink plenty of fluids throughout the day.
  2. Dress Appropriately: Opt for lightweight, breathable clothing—avoid heavy jackets and sweaters.
  3. Seek Shade: When possible, avoid direct sunlight. If unavoidable, wear long-sleeved clothing and a brimmed hat.
  4. Take it Easy: Pace yourself and avoid overexertion. Listen to your body and rest as needed.
  5. Protect Children: Children, who often play outdoors, are vulnerable. Ensure they stay hydrated.
