Instructions:

A Heat Advisory means that a period of excessively hot humid weather is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which there is an increased risk for heat related health issues. Drink plenty of fluids and stay in an air-conditioned environment, if possible. Be sure to check on elderly relatives and neighbors. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. If possible, reschedule strenuous activities to the early morning or late evening hours. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing and drink plenty of water. To reduce your risk while working outdoors, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in a shaded or air conditioned environment. Anyone overcome by the heat should be moved to a cool shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency...call 9 1 1.
