The Saskatchewan Health Authority is reminding the public to take precautions as smoke from forest fires is creating poor air quality and rising temperatures are affecting many parts of the province.
Smoke concentrations can vary widely as winds, fire behavior and temperatures change. Children, seniors, and those with heart or lung diseases, are potentially at risk. Heat-related illnesses include: heat rash (skin irritation), heat cramps (muscle cramps), heat edema (swelling of hands, feet, and ankles), heat fainting, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
