San Antonio – With a scorching weekend of triple-digit temperatures ahead, the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District has issued an extreme heat warning. KSAT 12 has put together a quick cheat sheet of what you might need.

The name of the game stays cool. Here are some basics.

  • Stay hydrated. George Perez, operational director of SA Metro Health’s Public Health Emergency Preparedness Division, recommends drinking a gallon of water a day.

  • Limit outdoor activitiesespecially during the hottest hours of the day.

  • Take advantage of the air conditioning. If you don’t have air conditioning at home, a trip to one of the cooling centers below, or even a box store, is worth the trip.
