Heat wave advice

We all know how fickle the British weather can be and, whilst most of us enjoy sunny weather, extreme heat can be a hazard to your health. We hope that our advice will help keep North Kesteven residents safe.

Please follow the following links for advice:

Residents are advised to:

  • Check the local weather forecast and, if a heatwave is forecast, try and plan your day in a way that allows you to stay out of the heat.

  • If you can, avoid going out in the hottest part of the day (11am to 3pm).

  • If you must go out, stay in the shade. Wear a hat and light, loose-fitting clothes, preferably cotton. If you will be outside or travelling by car or public transport for some time, take plenty of water with you.

  • Heatstroke can develop very suddenly so, if you suspect that you or someone else has heatstroke, call 999 immediately.
