PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to the early morning or
the late evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion
and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing.
Drink plenty of water.

To reduce your risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety
and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest
breaks in a shaded or air conditioned environment. Anyone overcome
by heat should be moved to a cool shaded location. Heat stroke is
an emergency, call 9 1 1.

An Excessive Heat Watch means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures is expected. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will create a DANGEROUS SITUATION.
Stay in an air-conditioned environment, stay out of the sun, and
check on elderly relatives and neighbors.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in a
vehicle under any circumstance. This is especially true during hot
weather when a car`s interior can reach lethal temperatures in a
matter of minutes.
