“Of particular concern are the high school kids that often start two-a-days in August,” Fesser said. “There’s sometimes some social pressure to not admit that you may be feeling poorly or that you’re not able to endure whatever activity that everyone else is performing. It’s important to not let pride cause you to make a bad decision. Taking time to cool off, and certainly trying to avoid the hottest hours of the day, between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., we have to be mindful of those kinds of things.”
Fesser added that people with underlying health problems such as asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease should be particularly cautious in the heat. He said to always remember to rehydrate with plenty of water and electrolytes.
