As temperatures rise across the metro healthcare workers are reminding people look for ways to stay cool.

Emergency rooms usually see an uptick in heat-related illnesses every summer the first time temperatures rise past the mid 90s.

People need pay close attention to how they feel before they get overheated, said Dr. Thomas Hindsley with Truman Medical Center.

"A lot of heat illness, if it's identified early, can be managed at home," Hindsley said. "A cool bath can do wonders, especially for people who feel like they can't afford to turn on the air conditioning."

Call 911 immediately if you notice someone is slurring their words or seems confused or is having trouble walking, because those are all signs of heat stroke.
