Be ready for the sun
Going into the weekend, Parkland Ambulance Care director of public affairs Lyle Karasiuk is encouraging everyone to play it safe in the sun.
Wear plenty of sunscreen and put on a hat, he encourages. Drink plenty of water and be sure to take plenty of rest breaks if you‚Äôre working in the sun.
Although he notes that alcoholic beverages taste good on hot summer days, they don‚Äôt keep you hydrated.
