* Temperature... afternoon and early evening temperatures ranging
from 104 to 107 degrees.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Take extra precautions if you must work or spend time outside.
Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing, drink plenty of
water, and take frequent breaks, preferably in an air conditioned
area. When possible reschedule strenuous activities during the
morning or mid evening hours. Be sure to check on persons with
health problems and the elderly, as they are the most susceptible
to heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded
location. Heat stroke is an emergency... call 9 1 1.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a
matter of minutes. Look before you lock!
