Take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside. When

stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

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.
