Hot Weather Safety Tips -

The Saint Louis County Department of Public Health
Urges Caution During
Periods of Extreme Heat

Every summer, the Saint Louis Area experiences periods of extreme heat and the St. Louis County Department of Public Health is urging residents to take precautions to prevent heat-related illnesses and injuries.

High temperatures can be dangerous. People normally cool their bodies by sweating, but under some conditions, sweating isn't enough. Very high body temperatures can damage the brain and other vital organs. Some conditions that can decrease the body’s ability to regulate temperature include old age, obesity, fever, dehydration, heart disease, poor circulation, sunburn, and drug and alcohol use. The very young, the elderly, and those with chronic medical conditions such as diabetes or heart disease are at a greater risk for heat-related health issues and should take extra precautions to stay cool and hydrated.

Children and pets should never be left unattended in a vehicle. Even in 70 degree weather, the interior temperature of a vehicle can increase rapidly, to over 100 degrees in just 20 minutes. Cracking a window does not help. Leaving a child or pet unattended in a vehicle often leads to a life-threatening emergency. Anyone who sees a child or animal unattended in a vehicle should call 9-1-1 immediately.
 
Protecting Against Heat-Related Illness and Injury
To protect your health when temperatures rise above 95 degrees, the Saint Louis County Department of Public Health recommends the following:
  • Turn on the air conditioning to cool the air! This may seem obvious, but people often try to save money by using fans instead of air conditioning. However, fans only move the air around – they do not cool it. When temperatures rise above 95 degrees, fans can actually heat a room by circulating the hot air.
  • Drink plenty of cool, non-alcoholic beverages. Increase your fluid intake regardless of your activity level. During heavy exercise in hot weather, drink 2 to 4 glasses (16 to 32 ounces) of cool fluids each hour (preferably those without sugar or caffeine). Consult your doctor if you have been prescribed a fluid-restricted diet or diuretics. During hot weather, you will need to drink more liquid than your thirst indicates. This is especially true for those over 65 years of age. Avoid very cold beverages to prevent stomach cramps or drinks containing alcohol, which will actually cause you to lose more fluid.
  • Replace Salt and Minerals. Heavy sweating removes salt and minerals from the body, which are necessary for your body and must be replaced. The best way to replace salt and minerals is to drink fruit juice or a sports beverage during exercise or any work in the heat. Do not take salt tablets unless directed by your doctor. If you are on a low-salt diet, ask your doctor before changing what you eat or drink.
  • Wear Appropriate Clothing and Sunscreen. Wear as little clothing as possible when you are at home. Choose lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing. In the hot sun, a wide-brimmed hat will keep your head cool. Sunburn affects your body's ability to cool itself and causes a loss of body fluids. It also causes pain and damages the skin. A variety of sunscreens are available to reduce the risk of sunburn. Check the sun protection factor (SPF) number on the label of the sunscreen container. Select SPF 15 or higher and follow package directions.
  • Pace Yourself. If you are unaccustomed to working or exercising in hot weather, start slowly and pick up the pace gradually. If exertion in the heat makes your heart pound and leaves you gasping for breath, stop all activity, get into a cool or shady area, and rest, especially if you become lightheaded, confused, weak, or feel faint.
  • Stay Cool Indoors. The most efficient way to beat the heat is to stay in an air-conditioned area. If you do not have an air conditioner or evaporative cooling unit, consider a visit to a shopping mall or public library for a few hours. Do not rely on electric fans as your primary cooling device during a heat wave. When the temperature is in the high 90s or higher, a fan will not prevent heat-related illness. A cool shower or bath is a more effective way to cool off.
  • Schedule Outdoor Activities Carefully. If you must be out in the heat, plan your activities so that you are outdoors either before noon or in the evening. While outdoors, rest frequently in a shady area.
  • Use a Buddy System. When working in the heat, monitor the condition of your coworkers and have someone do the same for you. If you are 65 years of age or older, have a friend or relative call to check on you twice a day during a heat wave. If you know anyone in this age group, check on them at least twice a day.
  • Monitor Those at High Risk. Those at greatest risk of heat-related illness include:
    1. infants and children up to four years of age;
    2. people who overexert during work or exercise;
    3. people 65 years of age or older;
    4. people who are ill or on certain medications; and
    5. people who are overweight.
    If you or someone you know is at higher risk, it is important to drink plenty of fluids; avoid overexertion; and get your doctor or pharmacist's advice about medications taken for high blood pressure, depression, nervousness, mental illness, insomnia, or poor circulation.
  • Adjust to the Environment. Be aware that any sudden change in temperature, such as an early summer heat wave, will be stressful for your body. You will have a greater tolerance for the heat if you limit your physical activity until you become accustomed to the heat. If traveling to a hotter climate, allow several days to get used to it before attempting any vigorous exercise, and work up to it gradually.
  • Use Common Sense. Avoid hot foods and heavy meals; they add heat to your body. If at a picnic, don’t leave foods unrefrigerated. Food spoils more rapidly in the heat. Don’t leave infants, children, or pets in a parked car. Dress infants and young children in cool, loose clothing and shade their heads and faces with hats or an umbrella. Limit sun exposure during the midday hours and in places of potential severe exposure, such as beaches. Ensure that infants and children drink adequate amounts of liquids. If you can, bring your pets indoors with you to protect them. Give your outdoor animals plenty of fresh water, leave the water in a shady area, and consider wetting the animal down.

The Wildwood Community Park Playground

PARKS AND RECREATION ACTION PLAN (2007)

UPDATE PROCESS

The City of Wildwood adopted its Parks and Recreation Action Plan in 2007. This plan was created by a citizen committee and adopted by the Planning and Zoning Commission and thereafter endorsed by the City Council. The process to create this plan involved significant public input and analysis of the City’s original Parks and Recreation Plan, which had been adopted in 2001. The 2007 Action Plan was intended to identify a small number of attainable goals that had been larger ideas outlined in the 2001 plan. The 2007 Action Plan outlined four (4) goals, and a number of recommendations within each goal, as a way to achieve them within the next ten (10) years. Some of the smaller items had short-term deadlines, while others noted it would take years to achieve. These goals included:

  1. Programming – Partner with the other providers to create the greatest range of programming opportunities possible for residents, beginning with the Wildwood Family YMCA, the Pond Athletic Association, the Rockwood School District, and the St. Louis Community College.
  2. Facilities – Expand current commitments to development of all types of trail systems (pedestrian, bicycle, equestrian) in the City of Wildwood, which are intended to link all public park spaces and population centers together, along with implementing the recently adopted “Access and Mobility Plan.”
  3. Acquisition – Identify and prioritize locations for future park land acquisitions, with the first action to be the acquisition of a parcel of ground, of a size to accommodate a community park, within the central area of the City (proximity to
    State Route 100 and State Route 109 and environs).
  4. Funding – Implement the necessary steps to promote the presentation of a park sales tax to the voters of Wildwood, no later than the November 2008 General Election, for use in the development of parks facilities and recreation programs, to include staffing, maintenance, and other expenses.

Now with the Action Plan ten (10) years old, it is time to review and update this plan. As part of this update process, the Department of Planning and Parks has created a website specific to the City’s parks and recreation efforts. The three (3) main sections relate to Parks, Trails, and Events. Information is still being added to these areas, so check back often.  Additionally, the website contains a blog that we are hoping you’ll view and regularly respond to with comments. Department staff will be posting images and ideas relative to parks and recreation. These posts will also include questions and an opportunity for everyone to comment. We want to hear from you! The website can be found at: www.cityofwildwood.com/actionplanupdate.  Scroll down past the three (3) main sections to see, and participate, in the blogs. There are already several stories out there to get the conversation started.
