Water is never too much
Minsk takes action to help prevent heatstroke
On the capital’s streets and city beaches they are giving out drinking water — absolutely free. The Minsk’s City Department of the Ministry for Emergency Situations has decided to help people to bear the summer’s heat. They propose a free glass or bottle of water together with a reminder of the main safety rules regarding hot weather. Drivers especially should be careful of their health.
Traffic wardens, members of lifesaving societies and volunteers of the Red Cross are also helping in this campaign.
