Kelly & West Offers Safety Tips in Preparation for the Expected Heat Wave this Weekend

The National Weather Service announced an excessive heat watch from Central North Carolina to the coast Friday through Sunday night.

Temperatures are expected to reach 105 degrees over the weekend and could hit a record high of 106 degrees at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, according to Elizabeth Gardner, WRAL meteorologist.

With high heats expected this weekend, Raleigh personal injury law firm Kelly & West offer dehydration prevention tips. According to the injury lawyers, the following tips can help people stay hydrated during the sweltering heat:

  • Drink plenty of water, especially before, during and after exercise
  • Try to drink every 15 to 20 minutes if you are participating in outdoor activities
  • If you are active for more than an hour, use a sports drink such as Gatorade or G2 sports drinks to help replace electrolytes
  • Make sure your children stay hydrated by giving them lots of fluids and popsicles (children between the ages 4 and 10 should drink 8 to 12 glasses of water per day)
  • Avoid coffee and other drinks that contain caffeine
  • Avoid alcoholic drinks because they can increase dehydration
  • Don’t take salt tablets
  • If you feel lightheaded, you should go inside

As the temperature continue to rise, be sure to keep yourself and your children hydrated. For more information contact Raleigh, NC personal injury lawyers of Kelly & West.

    “Reggie Kelly is a fantastic attorney with fantastic paralegals. My wife and I have been using him and his firm since 1983 when we first purchased property in Harnett County 37 years ago. He offers excellent legal advice and guidance. He never gets in a hurry to get us out the door because of his next appointment. He always takes the time needed to check out all of the issues that might come up. Reggie Kelly is a proud American and he loves our country and he wants everyone to do well. Reggie Kelly is an even finer person than he is a fantastic attorney and we are very fortunate to also be able to call him and his wife Cheryl our friends. We give him a 10 STAR Review!”
