Hot weather and how to survive it
Dealing with Dehydration:
Drink LOTS of water and juices (note:pop and sodas (cola, sprite, rootbeer, etc…) do not count) your body needs the hydration to keep cool.
Heat Exhaustion & stroke:
Acclimate to the weather by spending time outside, NOT in a climate controlled basement.
Try to stick to only wearing band shirts, pants, and socks, if possible try and stick to cotton as it is a summer fiber and breathes very well.
Rest is very important because it keeps you body alert and full of the energy it needs to keep you cool.
After a parade remeber to cool down with a damp cloth on your head (usually supplied by the chaperones) and drink lots of water, just remember that cooling down too quickly can be a bad thing and make you sick.
