EASTON, Conn. -- The dog days of summer are here, so naturally heat advisories have been issued to notify everyone of the severe weather. For those who work outside for a living, abiding by these warnings can be difficult, but luckily KRS Roofing has tips on how to beat the heat.

The first thing to understand is that there are two types of heat-related illnesses that have an immediate effect on the body: heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Heat stroke is the most dangerous heat-related illness. The most common symptoms are confusion and high body temperature resulting in fainting. Experiencing a heat stroke can put a strain on the brain, heart and lungs if not treated properly.

Heat exhaustion is the more common illness, with the indicators being nausea, dizziness and headaches. Although heat exhaustion is not as severe at heat stroke, both illnesses result from being exposed to intense heat and can cause serious medical problems that must be treated immediately.

So while working outside in the summer can be a very dangerous operation, Kurt Stowell and the team at KRS Roofing explain ways to keep your cool and stay safe in the heat.

  • Stay Hydrated. Drink water every 15-20 minutes. It's important when expending energy under the sun.
  • Ease Your Way In. Avoid overworking your body by giving it time to adapt from the air-conditioned living to room to the unbearable outdoor heat.
  • Dress Appropriately. Wear light clothing and a hat to avoid direct sunlight.
  • Rest as Much as Possible. During the work day, it's crucial to lay down in the shade and get some rest before heading back to the job.

If these tips don't work and you see someone who may be suffering from heat exhaustion or heat stroke, take the right steps to ensure their safety. Immediacy call 911, pour cold water on their forehead and place ice packs on them until help arrives.

KRS Roofing knows a thing or two about working in the heat as they have worked on both minor and major roof repairs and even replacements under the hot sun. For more information about KRS Roofing, contact Kurt Stowell and his team at 203-913-8301.
