BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -


With temperatures on the rise, it’s no surprise EMS is having some busy days now. Officials say they’ve responded to eight calls in the last two days.
That’s compared to 32 calls for the entire month of June.

EMS says it’s easy to overheat at the start of the summer when your body isn’t accustomed to the temperatures.

If you’re spending time outside, remember to drink plenty of fluids, take frequent breaks, and get in the shade if you feel overheated.
