vulnerability to heat, including small children. Check in on family,
friends, and neighbors, especially the elderly. If engaging in
outdoor activity, take longer and more frequent breaks and avoid the
hottest parts of the day. Never leave kids or pets unattended in

Public cooling shelters are available in some areas. Consult county
