Surviving Texas Heat

Avoid the dangers of heat exposure. Stay in air-conditioned buildings as much as possible, and do not rely on a fan as a primary cooling device during an extreme heat event. Drink more water and watch for symptoms of heat related illness like muscle cramps, dehydration, headaches, nausea or vomiting. Seek medical help in case of an emergency.
