Using air conditioning in summer can be helpful but cost. Is there anything to do or any organization to seek help from for low income families?



Stay cool and hydrated


This is one of the most important tips that anyone should follow. More importantly:


Staying hydrated means you need to drink more water than usual, and don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink. Give yourself some rules to drink 8 – 10 cups of water each day on a regular pace.



Do NOT just rely on fans because it won’t help prevent heatstroke if the temperature is really high.
