With record heat temperatures hitting New Jersey this week, staying indoors and keeping outdoor activities limited is the best precaution. Being outdoors in extreme heat can cause heat exhaustion and heat strokes and sometimes death.
Stay indoors in air conditioning as much as possible.
If you do go outside stay in the shade.
If your home is not air conditioned, spend at least two hours daily at an air-conditioned mall, library or other public place.
Wear sunscreen outside, along with loose-fitting, light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible
Drink water regularly even if you are not thirsty. Limit alcoho and sugary drinks that speed dehydration.
Never leave children or pets alone in the car.
Avoid exertion during the hottest part of the day.
Take a cool shower or bath.
Be a good neighbor, check on elderly and people with disabilities in your community who may need assistance keeping cool.
Residents also are encouraged to contact their local and county authorities to find out about cooling stations in their town.

Recommended to us by a friend, Gordon and his team of professionals provided the support we needed to first decide we wanted to sell, determine the value of our home, stage it for showing and negotiate a speedy sale. Gordon listened to our concerns and took our feelings and needs into consideration at every turn. His team is the best. They are truly dedicated to their clients. I would use Gordon again and recommend him to anyone without reservation."
