With Texas heat increasing, here are a few safety tips

As the heat index in Central Texas rises to 108+, here's a reminder of the things you need to do to stay safe.

AUSTIN, Texas — It doesn't matter how warm it is, people find a way to stay outdoors – no matter the high temps.

On Wednesday, people were working out even when the temperature got up to 98 degrees.

A Camp Gladiator group in Round Rock was out one of them and their trainer says that people forget and get used to the heat.

"I mean, it will bother people at first because it is hot, but we try to accommodate them with as much shade and water – I always tell them to drink water," said Paul Martin-Bankowski.
