The National Weather Service in Birmingham has issued a heat

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

   A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are

... Information that can help you beat the heat...

The National Weather Service will issue a heat advisory if certain
criteria are met. A heat advisory normally means that air
temperatures are forecast to be much above normal. In the southern
United States during the Summer months, humidity levels can make it
feel even more oppressive. The heat index is the temperature the body
feels when the effects of heat (air temperature) and humidity are
combined. Air temperatures are taken in the shade, so heat index
values will be even higher when you are exposed to direct sunlight.

For central Alabama a heat advisory is issued when air temperatures
are forecast to reach 103 degrees or higher, or if the heat index is
forecast to reach 105 degrees or higher.

... Heat safety tips...

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids even if you do not feel
thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol.

Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing. Avoid dark
colors because they absorb the sun's rays.

If you must work outdoors, take frequent breaks in shaded areas or
air conditioned buildings.

Never leave children or pets alone in vehicles.

Slow down, stay indoors, and avoid strenuous exercise during the
hottest part of the day.

Check on family, friends, and neighbors who do not have air
conditioning.
