* WHAT...Dangerously hot conditions increasing through Wednesday
  and holding through at least Friday. Temperatures are likely to
  exceed records both for highs and lows for many locations
  Tuesday through Saturday.

* WHERE...Portions of northwest Arizona, southeast California
  and southern Nevada.

* WHEN...From 10 AM Monday until 9 PM Saturday.

* IMPACTS...Extreme heat will significantly increase the potential
  for heat-related impacts such as dehydration, hyperthermia, heat
  cramps, heat stroke and exhaustion...particularly for those
  participating in outdoor activities or those without access to
  adequate cooling. Extreme risk of injury or death for those left
  in vehicles.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Several days of near-record or record
  breaking high and low temperatures will likely result in
  compounding effects of heat to much or all of the population.
  These conditions may linger through the weekend and an extension
  of this warning beyond Saturday may be needed as well.


Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out
of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young
children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles
under any circumstances.

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 lightweight and loose fitting clothing when
possible. 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.
