A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures combined
with high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses
may occur. To reduce the risk of heat illness during outdoor
work and activities, the occupational safety and health
administration recommends scheduling frequent breaks in shaded or
air conditioned environments.

Never leave unattended children or pets in a closed vehicle,
temperatures inside can rise to fatal levels within minutes.
Make sure outside pets and livestock have access to a well
ventilated and shaded area with plenty of water available.
