Tips for Managing Excessive Heat

  • Watch for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke in yourself and others. Call 911 immediately if you know someone who experiences symptoms.
  • Do not leave children or people with mobility challenges in a parked car, even with the windows down. Call 911 immediately if you see unattended children in parked cars.
  • King County animal control officers will respond to calls about animals in distress due to the heat. Call 911 or 206-296-7387 for assistance.
  • Drink plenty of water. Avoid dehydration, which can occur when relying on drinks with caffeine or high sugar levels. Also avoid alcohol.
  • Rivers and lakes are still cold, even though it’s hot outside. That can sap even strong swimmers’ strength in a matter of minutes. Wear a personal flotation device and avoid alcohol. Learn more about water safety and drowning prevention.

Call 911 with any heat-related health concerns.


More tips for dealing with heat are on the King County website.
