PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means high humidities are expected to combine
with hot temperatures to make it feel like it is 105 degrees or
greater. This combination will increase the likelihood of heat
illnesses. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned
room, stay out of the sun, check on relatives and neighbors, and
provide shade and fresh water for outdoor animals.

Children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles.
Car interiors will reach lethal temperatures in a matter of
minutes given the outdoor conditions expected today. Use the air
conditioner, open the doors, or roll down the windows if you are
left inside a vehicle.
