OR APARTMENTS. PEOPLE IN THE WARNING AREA ARE ADVISED TO AVOID
POORLY VENTILATED AREAS AND PROLONGED WORK IN THE SUN. USE AIR
CONDITIONING IN YOUR HOUSE OR APARTMENT IF IT IS WORKING
CORRECTLY. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AIR CONDITIONING...KEEP YOUR HOUSE
OR APARTMENT WELL VENTILATED WITH FANS...AND TRY TO SPEND SOME
TIME IN AN AIR CONDITIONED ENVIRONMENT TO GIVE YOUR BODY A BREAK
FROM THE HEAT.

  TAKE EXTRA PRECAUTIONS IF YOU WORK OR SPEND TIME OUTSIDE. WHEN
POSSIBLE...RESCHEDULE STRENUOUS ACTIVITIES TO THE EARLY MORNING
OR EVENING. KNOW THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF HEAT EXHAUSTION AND
HEAT STROKE. WEAR LIGHT WEIGHT AND LOOSE FITTING CLOTHING WHEN
POSSIBLE AND DRINK PLENTY OF WATER.

  TO REDUCE RISK DURING OUTDOOR WORK...THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY
AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION RECOMMENDS SCHEDULING FREQUENT REST
BREAKS IN SHADED OR AIR CONDITIONED ENVIRONMENTS. ANYONE OVERCOME
BY HEAT SHOULD BE MOVED TO A COOL AND SHADED LOCATION. HEAT
STROKE IS AN EMERGENCY...CALL 9-1-1 IMMEDIATELY.
