    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
    possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or

    stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible
    and drink plenty of water. Check up on relatives and neighbors.
    Absolutely do not leave children or pets unattended in vehicles!

    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 911.
