It is going to be really hot outside this Summer, and its best that folks are staying safe. Summer is a great time to be outside and have cookouts, go swimming, boating, and just get chores done. The American Red Cross has tips on how people can stay safe this Summer during extreme heat. Angie Springs with the American Red Cross says there are multiple ways you can beat the heat waves this summer.

Springs says if people are not taking care of themselves they can suffer different types of heat injuries that could leave them severely ill and even lead to death.

The American Red Cross urges people to have a water bottle with them at all times during the Summer time.
