Parkland Ambulance also reminds people that is is easy to get sunburned on a cloudy day, just as it is on a hot, sunny day.
Wear sunscreen, a hat and drink plenty of water to continue having summer fun.
Alcoholic beverages and pop are not considered good to stay hydrated -- instead just drink water.
