Record high temperatures in Utah and elsewhere in the country mean people must take steps to protect themselves from heat stroke and heat exhaustion, particularly those whose activities involve intense physical exertion.

Proper hydration is critical, as is proper gear and exercising in the early morning or evening, experts say.

“Make sure you have a hat, sunglasses and some light-fitting clothing so that you can protect yourself from the heat,” Dr. Scott McIntosh, emergency physician for the University of Utah Health, told KSL-TV.

“Also make sure to bring plenty of water and/or sports drinks and just some good snacks to make sure that your body’s fueled well for these adventures.”

McIntosh’s advice is timely given record high temperatures in Utah, 107 degrees in Salt Lake City on Sunday, which tied the all-time hottest temperature ever recorded in the city, according to the KSL Weather Center.

High temperatures this week are forecast in the upper 90s and lower 100s.
