Swimming pools also are open around Davis:

UC Davis Recreation Pool: 1 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesdays; noon to 7 p.m Thursdays through Sundays.

Take precautions to prevent heat-related illness:

* Ensure that you have ample water on hand. If you plan to be camping or at outdoor events, make an effort to find shade and pack extra water.

* Stay cool indoors in air-conditioned facilities, especially during the hottest part of the day. Residents who do not have adequate air conditioning should find a friend or relative to stay with during the hottest parts of the day, or another location where air conditioning is available such as a public building, shopping center, restaurant or movie theater.

* Pace yourself and avoid heavy exertion in the heat

* Wear lightweight, loose fitting clothing, a broad-brimmed hat and sunscreen

* Avoid hot foods and heavy meals

* If you become lightheaded, feel confused or experience any other symptoms of heat exhaustion, get to a cool area until you feel better

* Never leave a person or animal in a parked car; temperatures inside a vehicle can rise to dangerous levels in minutes

* Don’t forget pets and livestock, they need extra water and shade

* Check on neighbors who may need assistance.
