Four cooling stations are set up around Tulsa for anyone to come cool off:

Anyone planning on being out in the heat needs to make sure to drink plenty of water and electrolyte drinks hours before and during any heat exposure. Do not drink alcohol or caffeine.

Light-colored clothing that is loosely fitted is the best option, and a wide-brimmed hat will provide shade.

PSO has assistance programs for high cooling bills for anyone worried about the financial burden of staying cool.

Also, be sure to check on elderly neighbors and those who are working outdoors.

And never leave a child or a pet inside a car for any reason.
