Heat Advisory and Cooling Centers Information

High temperatures has been forecasted for the Labor Day Weekend. For a list of Cooling Centers and information on heat-related illnesses and prevention, please visit the Public Health website at www.publichealth.lacounty.gov, or call 2-1-1. The Rosemead Community Recreation Center, Cooling Center will not be open due to the Holiday Weekend.

Tips for those who must work or exercise outdoors:
• Ensure that cool drinking water is available.
• Drink water or electrolyte-replacing sports drinks often; do not wait until you are thirsty.
• Avoid drinking sweetened drinks, caffeine, and alcohol.
• Avoid drinking extremely cold water as this is more likely to cause cramps.
• Allow athletes or outdoor workers to take frequent rests.
• Pay attention to signs of dehydration which include dizziness, fatigue, faintness, headaches, muscle cramps, and increased thirst. Individuals with these symptoms should be moved to a cooler, shaded place, and given water or sport drinks. More severe signs of heat- related illness may include diminished judgment, disorientation, pale and clammy skin, a rapid and weak pulse, and/or fast and shallow breathing.
• Coaches, teachers, and employers should seek immediate medical attention for those exhibiting signs of heat-related illness.
• Avoid unnecessary exertion, such as vigorous exercise during peak sun hours, if you are outside or in a non-air conditioned building.

Older adults and individuals with chronic medical conditions:
• During peak heat hours stay in an air-conditioned area. If you do not have access to air conditioning in your home, visit public facilities such as cooling centers, shopping malls, parks, and libraries to stay cool.
• Do not rely only on open windows or a fan as a primary way to stay cool. Use the air conditioner. If you’re on reduced income, find out more about the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, by calling (866) 675-6623 or contacting your utility provider.
• Older adults and those on certain medications may not exhibit signs of dehydration until several hours after dehydration sets in. Stay hydrated by frequently drinking cool water. If you’re on a special diet that limits liquids, check with your doctor for information on the amount of water to consume.
• Stay out of the sun if you do not need to be in it. When in the sun, wear a hat, preferably with a wide brim, and loose-fitting, light-colored clothing with long sleeves and pants to protect against sun damage. And remember to use sun screen and to wear sunglasses.

Infants and Children:
• It is illegal to leave an infant or child unattended in a vehicle (California Vehicle Code Section 15620).
• Infants and young children can get dehydrated very quickly. Make sure they are given plenty of cool water to drink.
• Keep children indoors or shaded as much as possible.
• Dress children in loose, lightweight, and light colored clothing.

Pets:
• Never leave a pet unattended in a vehicle, even with the windows ‘cracked’ or open.
• Outdoor animals should be given plenty of shade and clean drinking water.
• Do not leave pets outside in the sun.
• Pets should not be left in a garage as garages can get very hot due to lack of ventilation and insulation.
