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 at once. Heat
stroke is an emergency. Call 9 1 1.

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.

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will create a dangerous situation
where heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids and stay
in an air conditioned room. Stay out of the sun and check up on
relatives and neighbors. Temperatures within vehicles can become
lethal in a few minutes. Never leave children or pets in
vehicles. Remember to beat the heat... check the backseat.
