Protect your family from the sun

Wear wide-brimmed hats, always apply water-resistant sunscreen with at least SPF15 and reapply sunscreen every 2 hours.

Heat safety

Avoid intense activities between noon and 3pm when the sun is at its strongest.

Dress for the heat

Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing. Choose light, breathable fabric such as cotton and wear sunglasses to protect your eyes.

Stay Indoors

When the heat gets unbearable, try indoor activities at your community recreation center like basketball, yoga or badminton.

Have fun and play safe

Avoid food poisoning
