A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is

will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible.

Take extra precautions, especially if you work or spend time
outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early
morning or evening. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing
when possible and drink plenty of water. Drink plenty of fluids,
stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sunshine, and
check up on relatives and neighbors.

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.
