MARYVILLE, MO (2010-07-06) The Fourth of July is behind us and summer activities are in full swing.

Missouri Emergency Room physician Doctor Faye Doerhoff (deer-hoff) says one of the culprits of dangerous overheating is uniforms.
Symptoms of heat exhaustion can include nausea, fainting, muscle cramps, and weakness.
To avoid this from happening experts say coaches and adults should make sure the kids at play take breaks and stay hydrated.
