Safer Summer Advice
  • Drink plenty of water to keep hydrated.
  • Keep out of the sun between 11.00 and 15.00 - the hottest part of the day                  
  • Avoid any strenuous activity   

  • Make sure you look after those most at risk - older people and small children.

  • Wear plenty of sunscreen, the higher factor the better - ask your pharmacist about the best protection for your skin type


Could you 'Show you care' by visiting someone this summer?

Show You Care is an initiative by KFRS which aims to help make the lives of people in our community who may live in isolation or showing signs of stress or despair to feel valued, safer and less isolated.

Not having someone to talk to regularly can be lonely and isolating, particularly if you're used to sharing your home and time with others.

Join us and help people in your community to live safer during the summer heat.
