* TEMPERATURE...High temperatures will range from 92 to 101
  degrees.

* HEAT INDEX...Daily maximum heat index values will range from
  105 to 109 degrees.

* IMPACTS...Individuals and pets outdoors during peak heating

  exhaustion or heat stroke.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Be sure to check on persons with health problems and the
elderly...as they are the most susceptible to heat exhaustion and
heat stroke. Never leave young children or pets in an enclosed
vehicle...even for a short time...as temperatures can quickly
rise to life threatening levels.

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.
