Environment

Spring has sprung and summer is not far behind! Whether you like to enjoy indoor or outdoor activities that summer has to offer - the air you are breathing matters.

Outdoor Safety

During the summer months we tend to spend more time outdoors and sometimes when it's hot, the air quality can change. This change can impact our health:

  • Air we breathe
  • Exposure to extreme heat can cause serious or life-threatening health problems. Know the signs and symptoms of heat-related illnesses such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke to prevent and reduce the risk of illness for you and your family.
  • Unnecessary idling contributes to poor air quality and can harm your health. Find out what simple changes you can make to improve the air you breathe.

Vector Borne Diseases

Although rare, vector borne diseases can cause serious health risks. When outdoors make sure you and your family take the necessary precautions when enjoying the warmer weather.
