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.
