Stay out of the sun between 11am and 1pm, warns ER24

Emergency services provider ER24 says Gauteng residents should stay hydrated and out of the sun as the province faces yet another heatwave.

Extreme temperatures, as high as 36 degrees in some parts, are expected from Thursday until late on Sunday afternoon.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring warned that locals must stay out of direct sunlight, especially between 11am and 1pm, when the sun is hottest.

He says adults should be consuming two to three litres of water daily.

He also advises that people consider electrolyte solutions in cases where they have been sweating excessively.

Meiring stresses that pets, babies and the elderly should not be neglected during this heatwave.

We should definitely keep an eye on the youngsters and as well as the elderly.

Russel Meiring, ER24 spokesperson 

Our children should be staying hydrated and drinking plenty of fluids.
