Summer is usually a busy time of year for many folks in Tulsa. Whether it’s a family reunion, an extended vacation or any number of other fun activities, summer not only brings about crazy schedules, but that dreaded Tulsa heat as well.
We know you’ve already handled all of your AC repair and air conditioner service needs way before summer arrived, so what else can you do to keep cool during those days where you can’t go to an air conditioned oasis? Health Canada has five pointers:
Spending time outdoors is what summer is all about, but staying safe in the Tulsa heat is non-negotiable. And when you do finally make it back to air conditioning, make sure you’ve handled all of your AC repair and air conditioner service needs so you never have to worry about it going out in the heat of the summer.

- Stay in air conditioned places as much as you can. Of course, outdoor activities make this tough, but if you are able to take a couple-minute break and utilize an air conditioned building at a park or a vehicle’s air conditioning, do so.
- Drink plenty of fluids. Sip on your drink even if you don't consider yourself thirsty, as thirst can be an early warning of dehydration. If you begin to experience muscle cramping, take a few moments to rest as it may also be an early warning of dehydration or another heat-related illness.
- Take special considerations when organizing outdoor activities. Any type of workout or athletic practices should be done earlier or later in the day when the Tulsa temperatures are cooler.
- Dress to stay cooler in higher temperatures. Light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are your best choice.
- Keep your shower or bath a little more cool than normal. It can help you cool down a bit sooner so you can get back to basking in your home’s air conditioning.
