over a prolonged period could result in an increased risk to
heat related illnesses. Cars can reach lethal temperatures in
a matter of minutes. Never leave children or pets unattended
in a vehicle... not even for a minute.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible.
Drink plenty of water... avoid caffeinated... alcoholic or high
sugar content beverages... stay in an air-conditioned room... stay
out of the sun... and check up on neighbors... the elderly... and
pets.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible... reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
late evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and
heat stroke. Wear light colored... light weight and loose fitting
clothing when possible.

To reduce risk during outdoor work the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location... and seek
emergency assistance. Heat stroke is an emergency - call
911 immediately.
