PSO, others provide tips to beat the heat

TULSA, Okla. - In a public service project titled "Make Summer Bearable," Public Service Company of Oklahoma and other local entities warn Oklahomans of the dangers of heat illness and offers tips to avoid the serious, yet ofet overlooked condition.

Residents, business owners, and others are encouraged to visit www.PSOklahoma.com to download a free poster of tips to make summer bearable.

The poster reminds citizens that drinking plenty of water, wearing loose clothing, minimizing physical stress in the heat, and staying out of the heat when possible are great ways to prevent heat illness.

The public is encouraged to keep a copy of the poster as a safety measure to avoid, recognize, and respond to symptoms of heat-related illness. The poster also lists the signs of heat illness and advises what to do in situations such as heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke.

PSO says that if anyone is having difficulty paying for electric, do not turn off the air conditioner, but get help by calling PSO at 1-888-216-5323 to set up a payment arrangement.
