(WHAS11) -- Summer has begun, and it’s off to a hot start. With temperatures soaring above 90 degrees it’s important to use caution when working or playing outdoors.
Kids and adults found ways to cool off at the splash park at Waterfront Park, but cooling down your body is only one way to stay safe.
“It’s keeping their body cool, but they still need to make sure they are drinking plenty of water,” Kevin Wigginton with the American Red Cross, said.
Children under four are among those at greatest risk for heat-related illnesses, and he says knowing the symptoms can help keep you and your children safe.
The American Red Cross has a free application for your smartphone. It has safety tips and a checklist for beating the heat.
