EDDC strives to keep residents cool
THE heat wave might have eased for the moment, but with more hot weather forecast district council support officers are making sure residents can enjoy the warm conditions without overheating.
They are continuing to give householders advice on how to stay healthy and cool, and also take steps to make sure the vulnerable and elderly residents are keeping well.
The advice includes – staying out of the heat, particularly between 11am and 3pm, plenty of cold drinks and keeping the home cool by closing curtains to keep out the sun and using a fan if necessary.
Council housing staff will be checking more often on residents living alone and those with particular health problems.
Also anyone who is linked to the Home Safeguard alarm centre at Sidmouth and who feels unwell can call one of its operators for advice.
