NORCROSS, GA, October 11, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- AC White Relocations knows that moving in Atlanta can cause people to heat up quickly, even in the fall. This year, with record-breaking high temperatures and a fluctuating fall forecast, the Atlanta movers are concerned about more than just a little discomfort. For people unaccustomed to the heavy lifting involved in moving, the threat of heat stroke is very real.
Heat stroke and heat exhaustion can come on particularly quickly when base temperatures and the heat index rise to the upper 90s and beyond. This is not uncommon weather even into late fall in Atlanta, where autumn heat waves are common.
Signs of heat exhaustion include muscle weakness or fatigue, dizziness and nausea. When people moving in Atlanta experience these symptoms, it can be dangerous to their health and their property, as muscle fatigue could lead to dropping their items, potentially injuring themselves or other.
Heat stroke is even more dangerous. Heat stroke occurs when a person's body temperature rises, usually due to external temperatures and dehydration. Symptoms of a heat stroke include pain in the chest, similar to a heart attack, elevated body temperature, flushed skin, cramps and headaches. Heat stroke is a medical emergency and should be resolved by helping the victim cool down, drinking water to rehydrate, and contacting medical professionals.
The best way to avoid heat stroke is by avoiding strenuous exercise, including heavy lifting, on hot and humid days. One easy answer for avoid the causes of heat stroke is to hire an Atlanta moving company like AC White Relocations to conduct your move. Moving professionals are more accustomed to the work and have been trained to stay hydrated and recognize heat-related illnesses.
"Moving is heavy work. In this unrelenting heat, hiring a professional who understands how to do the job and beat the heat could be a life-saving decision," said Pete White, Vice President of Sales at AC White Relocations.
