Beat the Heat!

As much as it doesn’t seem like it with the occasional June snowstorm, Nevada is a desert. And with temperatures this weekend reaching three digits, it’s sure going to feel like it. So here are a few tips to keep cool (and safe) when the mercury rises this weekend.

  • Hydrate! Drink plenty of cold fluids, especially water. Avoid alcohol and carbonated, caffeinated drinks, as these types of beverages while tasty, will dehydrate you.
  • Spend as much time as you can in air condition. Visit the mall or the local library. If you do not have air conditioning, blast some fans and draw the blinds.
  • Wear lightweight, light colored clothing. Be sure to apply plenty of sunscreen and wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the harsh UV rays.
  • Make sure to keep an eye on infants and young children, as well as the elderly. The heat can affect these vulnerable age groups the most.
  • Don’t forget your four-legged friends! Provide plenty of fresh, cool water for your pets. Keep them indoors if possible or provide a cool, shaded place outdoors. If your pet seems to have trouble breathing or are panting excessively, seek medical care.
  • Stay indoors as much as possible. If you must venture out or exercise outdoors, do so in the early morning or after sundown.

Be aware of the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke!

  • Heat Exhaustion: occurs when someone is working or exercising in extreme heat and are unable to replace the fluids lost when sweating. Symptoms include profuse sweating, dizziness and nausea, and cold, clammy skin. Move the individual to a cool place and have them sip water slowly. Place cold compresses on face and neck. If their condition does not improve within minutes, call 911 immediately.
  • Heat Stroke: is a life-threatening condition that occurs when a person loses the ability to regulate their internal temperature, which can result in brain damage or death.  Symptoms include red, hot, and dry skin, dizziness and disorientation, or unconsciousness. If you suspect heat stroke, call 911 immediately. Immerse victim in a cool bath if possible while medical help arrives.

We hope these tips keep you and your family safe and cool. Oh! And don’t forget, eat plenty of ice cream!

The service that the staff here at Capital Auto Insurance offers is beyond amazing! The agents are all trained to answer any question I may have in regards to my insurance policy coverages. My entire family is insured through them because they have been able to shop around for us with different companies that they have, so they have been saving us all money in our insurance! They also have Income tax preparation services and they provided a discount to us because we are current clients! Briana, the tax preparer was awesome, she’s knowledgeable and nice! Thank you for all you do I really appreciate it.

My parents have insurance at this agency for over 5 years now, the service that they offer here exceeds my expectations. I became able to drive a couple of years back and The Agents at Capital Auto Insurance applied all the discounts possible to my parents policy so that the price didn't go out the roof! They took the time to help us complete some steps to become paperless on our document delivery options which gave us extra discounts! Stephanie the manager, is always nice and she's always making sure that the agents are helping the customers with their needs, Paola is the agent that usually helps me, she's awesome! and when we just go to make a payment Yesenia the receptionist is always welcoming clients with a big smile. Thank you guys for all you do!
