    * Impacts...Prolonged exposure to the heat and humidity may lead
    to heat-related illnesses if precautions are not taken.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    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.
