Heat Advisory

The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for most of southern Wisconsin, in effect from noon Thursday to 11 p.m. Friday, as temperatures are expected to hit the low 90s Thursday and the mid- to upper 90s Friday.

Heat index values will be in the 100s, possibly up to 110 on Friday.

TAKE PRECAUTIONS IN EXCESSIVE HEAT

The City of Sun Prairie Emergency Management recommends doing the following to prevent heat-related deaths/illnesses:
• Drink 1 to 1-1/2 quarts of fluid daily to prevent dehydration. Water, fruit juices and juice drinks are the best choices. Avoid alcohol and caffeine because they dehydrate the body.

• Wear light colored, lightweight clothing. If you must go outside during the hottest part of the day, wear a hat.

• While outdoors, rest frequently in a shady area.

• Check frequently on ill family members, the elderly and neighbors.

• Never leave children, the elderly or pets in a parked car, not even for a few minutes. Brain damage or death can occur from the rapid rise of temperature inside the vehicle.

The City of Sun Prairie does not currently have 24-hour cooling stations available for citizens. Public buildings (Public Library, West Community Building, and East Community Building) are available for use during hours of operation.

If you have a Heat Emergency, please dial 911

If you need assistance due to the heat contact Police Dispatch at 608-837-7336
