The heat is on across the country. Learn how to stay cool -- and safe -- when the mercury rises.

Avoid hot foods and heavy meals -- they add heat to your body. Dress infants and children in cool, loose clothing and shade their heads and faces with hats or an umbrella. Provide plenty of fresh water for your pets, and leave the water in a shady area.
