Summer Season Is Time To Prevent Heat Injury

In the past week, Sheridan saw multiple days with temperatures of 100 degrees or above.

But, even in the seemingly more temperate average of 80 degrees, citizens need to stay aware the potential for heat injuries is present, and it can happen fast. Toby Granger, a nurse at the public health office, said injuries can range from heat exhaustion, syncopy, rash, cramps, and stroke, and no one is immune.

Granger said the Centers for Disease Control has comprehensive information about the different types of heat injuries and how to treat them on its website.
