The City of Maize would like to remind everyone to take
the necessary precautions to avoid heat related illnesses during
the hot Kansas summer. People are most at risk anytime
temperatures rise above 90 degrees, especially the very young
and the elderly. Signs of heat-related illnesses include nausea,
flushed or pale skin, sweating, dizziness, and/or headaches. To
best prevent heat-related illnesses people should wear light
weight and light colored clothing, drink plenty of water, avoid
strenuous activity, and stay indoors whenever possible.
Heat-related illnesses that go left untreated can lead to
serious health problems or even death. In addition, be sure to
take care of your furry friends during the hot weather. Always
make sure cats and dogs have a place in the shade if left
outside during the day, and provide them with plenty of water.
