The metropolis is in grip of severe heat wave these days which warrants taking proper preventive measures to avoid heat stroke. DHA, aware of its social responsibilities as a corporate body, established a number of Heat Stroke Preventive Camps in DHA to provide essential first aid treatment to the affected persons and to evacuate them to Heat Stroke Treatment Centre at DHA Medical Centre if required. Coolers of cold drinking water, tang and lemonade (nimbu pani) and wet towels were kept at these camps to beat off the effects of the scorching heat wave.
A large number of public exposed to the severe heat visited these centres to get relief and solace from the blazing sun. This initiative besides helping the poor community will also create public awareness of the need to take preventive measures to save themselves from the scathing heat wave.
