WALK TAKEAWAY:

WalkArlington's summer walking tips will help you through the hot weather this summer. Download and enjoy!

With 100-degree temperatures, 105-degree heat indices and code orange ozone conditions, make no mistake — summer is definitely here in the region. The month of July has been another scorcher, and forecasts are calling for more of the same as we continue into August.

Apart from simply causing discomfort, exposure to extreme heat also poses health risks—including dehydration and heat stroke—all of which can potentially land you in the hospital. Check out WalkArlington‘s Safe Walking Tips: Summer Edition Guide (PDF, 194 KB.  Adbobe Reader required.) for walking in our area’s hot and humid weather.
