Marlborough – Heat waves come and go throughout the summer, but it’s important to know when it’s time to get out of the heat. Too much heat is not good for anyone, especially people with health problems or the elderly. During heat waves, make sure you drink plenty of water or juices, dress for the weather, try to stay in a cool place and know the signs of heat stroke. If after heat exposure you experience dizziness, nausea or weakness you may have an illness caused by the heat.
