The emergency services are reminding islanders about the risks of hot weather as temperatures are set to soar this week.
Temperatures are expected to hit 35°C today, 27°C on Wednesday and 28°C on Thursday.
Islanders are advised to
- Shut windows and pull down the shades, blinds or curtains when it is hotter outside
- Keep rooms cool by using shades or reflective material outside the windows
- Have cool baths or showers, and drink plenty of water. Avoid tea, coffee and alcohol.
- Wear loose, cool clothing
- Use sunscreen and hats especially for babies and young children
- Avoid leaving children and pets in cars or other confined spaces
Animal charities are urging owners to keep their pets in the shade during the hot weather.
The GSPCA says it is best to walk dogs early in the day or later in the evening.
They advise not travel or leave dogs in cars as this can be fatal.
