    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.

    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.
