* TEMPERATURE...Exceeding 105 degrees

* IMPACTS...High risk of heat stroke or other heat-related
  illness for those without air-conditioning or those outdoors
  for any extended period.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that hot temperatures or heat indices are
expected. The combination of heat and high humidity will combine
to create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink
plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of
the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors.

Take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside. When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to 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.
