It’s the middle of summer and it’s hot in San Diego. When a heat wave hits, County health officials encourage San Diegans to take precautions to avoid heat-related illnesses.

They recommend drinking plenty of water, staying indoors in an air-conditioned room and avoiding hard work or activities outside during the hottest part of the day.
