Hydration is important as heat hits the Hub
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Officials remind residents the importance of hydration as another scorcher hits the Hub.
7News’ Steve Cooper checked out how warm it was inside a car with no air conditioning on Friday -- the thermometer read over 110 degrees.
The heat was on for firefighters in Cambridge on Tuesday as they battled a two-alarm fire on Irving Street. Crews tried to stay hydrated, but it wasn’t easy as temperatures climbed quickly.
“Drink some water. Go into the house in the air conditioning for a little while,” said Mike Tucci, who was trying to stay cool on Tuesday.
Officials warned residents to be careful.
Brian Kelleher said there is a science to making deliveries on a hot day.
“Try and get your deliveries over with early and just take your time and try not to overdo it. Just stay hydrated, that’s all you can do really,” said Kelleher.
With air conditioners maxed out, the demand for power can be a challenge.
“Too much is too much,” said Robin Reid, who was trying to stay cool. “What can you do -- you’ve just got to deal with it the best you can.”
