Heat waves have been hitting the nation hard this summer. In many areas, people retreat to their air conditioned homes, but that doesn’t always protect families from the effects of high temperatures.

The American Red Cross has put together a Heat Wave Safety Checklist, which easily helps you know how to prepare for a future heat wave, what to do during a heat wave, and what to keep an eye on in order to identify when someone needs immediate attention.
