* PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
A Heat Advisory means high temperatures and/or high heat indices
are expected. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time
outside - 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. Also assure animals also have
access to shade and 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.
