An excessive heat watch means that the combination of heat and
humidity could create a dangerous situation in which heat
illnesses are possible.

Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health
conditions are at an increased risk. Homes without air
conditioning can be much hotter than outdoor temperatures.

Use air conditioning to stay cool at home or go to a place that
has air conditioning. Check on vulnerable friends, family members
and neighbors. To find a NYC cooling center call 3-1-1 or visit
NYC.Gov/oem

To reduce risk during outdoor work the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments.
