The National Weather Service in Birmingham has issued a Heat

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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

stroke is an emergency, call 9 1 1.

   A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
