Staying Cool In Trona

Fun Summer Treat

Boy-O-Boy, the weather is hot in Trona. The sun is glaring and everyone is looking for ways to stay cool. Trona Care Inc. would like to share with you some tips and ways to BEAT THE HEAT while still having fun. 1.    Water, Water, Everywhere:Summer is the perfect time for fun in the sun with water. Get out the water sprinkler, have a water-gun fight (Tip: with of course, our local business Water Blasters Inc.), have a water-balloon fight, and add a Kiddie wading pool for fun. Tip:Kiddie wading pools are inexpensive and you can buy one for no other reason than to put your feet in it. Even playing a game of catch by soaking sponge balls in a bucket of water can make you feel like you are in Antarctica. 3. Get Crafty: Set up a lemonade stand for friends and family to enjoy a cool cup. Tip: Adding cranberry juice ice cubs can make your lemonade have a special kick of flavor that will keep everyone coming back for more.

4. Inside Out or Outside In: Enjoy places like the Trona Branch Library or our Historical Museum or even our Community Pool (Monday thru Thursday 1pm to 7pm, Friday Thru Sunday 1pm to 6pm). With stories to read, things to learn and lots of snacks to buy, each place can make a hot day seem like a cool glass of water.

5. When All Else Fails…It’s Popsicle Time!

Whether inside or out, at home or at work, there’s nothing like a cold treat to cool you down quickly. Tip: Plan ahead and let the kids help make their own frozen treat using their favorite juices or stock up on their favorites for those emergency moments when everyone just needs to chill out! Tip: Always, Always drink lots of fluids and whatever you and your family choose to do, have fun and stay cool.

As a kid or even as a teenager, one of the favorite Summer treats is snow cones. They're bright and colorful and refreshing. Being in a remote area sometime you don’t have snow cone syrup when you want to make them. Snow Cones are and will always be the signal that Summer had finally arrived. Of course, you can make snow cones at home too, but the syrups are kind of pricey and it's easy and cheap to make your own snow cone syrup. You can do these several ways. The first is using Kool-Aid or using fruit juices.Snow Cone Syrup Using Kool-Aid 1 cup sugar 3/4 cup water 1 package unsweetened Kool-Aid, any flavor 1.Place the sugar and water in a pan and bring to a boil.

2. Remove from heat and stir in the Kool-Aid.

3. Cool to room temperature, then place in the refrigerator until chilled.

4. Store the syrups in squeeze bottles

5. When you're ready for a snow cone, pour the syrup over finely crushed or shaved iced. YUM!

For a healthier way to make snow cones syrup simply use fruit juice instead.

Whichever way you like it, enjoy a cool treat under the summer sun.

Heat Safety

Heat stroke is an elevated body temperature with physical and neurological symptoms. Heat stroke can be deadly if not treated properly or promptly.First step is prevention. There are two types of heat stroke. One is sudden onset and the second is lack of fluids in your body. Both can be deadly. Prevention starts with making sure you are hydrated. If you know you will be doing an activity in the heat, start drinking extra water as much as 24 hours in advance. For breakfast eat salty foods and make sure you have extra sports drinks chalked full of electrolytes. Wear light colored and light clothing to allow your skin to breath and sweat. A major sign of heat stroke is that you stop sweating. Prevention of heat stroke is very important. Continue to drink water and sports drinks and eat salty snacks throughout the day to replenish what your body loses during the activities.However, if you do get heat stroke you need to be able to identify the signs and react. Early signs can be related to heat exhaustion;> Dizziness> nausea> vomiting> weakness> fatigue> headache> muscle crampsif you are have any of these symptoms, rest, get out of the sun, rehydrate yourself.

  • But you can jump directly into heat stroke: > rapid pulse > you stop sweating > confusion> disorientation > Difficult breathing > high body temperature > lack of motor movement> hallucinations> seizures> even comasIf you observe any of these signs start the treatments below and call for emergency assistance either doctor or paramedic.Cool the body down: Sit, relax, find shade, wet some clothes and place on skin, drink fluids slowly alternate between sports drink and water, use a fan if possible. If you cannot get the body temperature down notify emergency medical personnel. They can give more ideas on cooling down the body while help is on the way.Make sure to practice these techniques. Heat stroke can be prevented.Tips and Tricks:* Prevention is key, drink extra fluids up to 24 hours in advance of your activities, eat salty foods, drink sports dink with electrolytes.* Continue to replenish yourself of electrolytes, water, and salt before, during and after your fun in the sun.
