Tips for surviving the heat wave
The forecast of very high temperatures for the following days has led the UAB Area of Prevention and Support to offer heat safety tips to the university community (workers and students).
The UAB recommends adopting the heat safety tips outlined by the Catalan Department for Work, such as staying in the shade, drinking lots of liquids, using sunscreen, sunglasses and hats and caps to protect oneself from the sun.
The General Direction of Civil Protection of the Generalitat de Catalunya has activated the alert phase for heat wave included in the Civil Protection Plan of Catalonia, PROCICAT, given the weather forecast of the Catalan Meteorological Service. The highest temperatures are expected for Thursday and Friday and the heat wave will affect all of Catalonia in general.
In case of medical emergencies, all members of the university community can visit the UAB Healthcare Service (SAS), which is open from 8 a.m. to 7:45 p.m., Mondays to Fridays. A 24-hour telephone number is also available for cases when the SAS is closed: 93 581 25 25.
