Heat wave takes over South Georgia

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Unless you live under a rock , most people agreed the heat can be too much when you step outside.

Most of South Georgia has been under a heat advisory for most of the week. 
"It's too hot," Britney Gardner said. 

Kids are trying to find relief through at the Splash pad downtown,but some don't even want to cool down in the water

"It's too hot and if you try to get into the water it's still too hot," Gardner said. 

But if you ask some adults getting in the water isn't a half bad idea.

"Well I am definitely going to this water right here and cool down a little," Maren Banks said. 

If you want to beat the heat here's the best solution.

"The best thing to do is to stay hydrated," Hal Pinson said.

Hal Pinson with Dougherty County EMS says so far there has been only a few heat related phone calls. 

"Mostly I say middle age people working out in the environment," Pinson said.

Pinson says the key thing to do is make sure you keep track of time, and stay hydrated.

"They get outside and loose track of time and how long they've been out there and get involved in what they're doing and not pay attention and getting dehydrate," Pinson said. 

Even if you plan to stay indoors stay hydrated regardless.
