* Impacts... persons who work or spend time outdoors will be at a
potential risk for heat-related illness. Heat exhaustion or heat
stroke may occur if precautions are not taken. The very Young,
the elderly, and those without air conditioning are especially
susceptible to heat related health problems.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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
possible. Drink plenty of fluids... stay in an air-conditioned
room... stay out of the sun... and check up on relatives and
neighbors.

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.
