City of Norwalk Connecticut - The City of Norwalk Presents Safety Tips Ahead of first Weekend with 90 Degree Temperatures 20 May 2022 ( news )

    ( Norwalk , Conn . )
    Today , May 20 , 2022 , the City of Norwalk issued a public service announcement with safety tips ahead of the heat expected this summer and as we enter the first weekend of the year when temperatures are expected to rise into the 90s .  
   Tomorrow , Saturday , May 21 , Norwalk is expected to have its first widespread 90 - degree temperatures and heat indices of the season are expected throughout the weekend .  
   As of 5:45 PM this evening ,...... the National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for southern Fairfield County , which includes Norwalk . It will be in effect tomorrow , May 21 from 12:00 - 8:00 PM . Residents should take precautions to stay cool and are encouraged to monitor their favorite weather apps and websites for updates and alerts .  
   Additionally , since air temperatures will be hot , cold - water temperatures will present a significant cold - water safety concern . Ocean and nearshore water temperatures are currently in the 50s to near 60 degrees range . This puts residents at greater risk of physical incapacitation and hypothermia if they fall in the water , which can occur within 10 minutes of entering the water , greatly increasing someone ' s risk of drowning .
   Safety Tips to help you Stay Cool during the Hot Days ahead:
   Dress for the heat . Wear lightweight , light - colored clothing . Light colors will reflect away some of the sun’s energy . It is also a good idea to wear hats or to use an umbrella .  
   Drink water . Carry water with you and drink continuously even if you do not feel thirsty . Avoid alcohol and caffeine , which dehydrate the body .  
   Eat small meals and eat more often . Avoid high - protein foods , which increase metabolic heat .  
   Slow down . Avoid strenuous activity . If you must do strenuous activity , do it during the coolest part of the day , which is usually in the morning between 4 AM - 7 AM .  
   Stay indoors when possible . If air - conditioning is not available , stay on the lowest floor out of the sunshine . Remember that electric fans do not cool , they simply circulate the air .  
   Be a good neighbor . During heat waves , check in on elderly residents in your neighborhood and those who do not have air conditioning .
    Be mindful . Never leave persons , especially children , and pets in a closed , parked vehicle .  
   Don’t get too much sun . Sunburn makes cooling down much more difficult .  
   Stay cool . If no air conditioning or fans are in your home , consider visiting with friends or family that have air - conditioning , the mall , library or movie theaters .
   Be prepared . During the summer heat , severe thunderstorms can move in quickly . It’s important to monitor weather forecasts and be prepared to change plans if severe weather is expected . If outdoors during severe weather , make sure to have a safety plan to seek shelter or move quickly .
   Residents can also access the City’s Summer safety tips by visiting ,
