Heat Advisory


... Heat advisory remains in effect until 5 PM PDT Friday...

* temperature... 99 to 104 degrees each afternoon through Friday.

* Impacts... temperatures in this range are unusual and prolonged
exposure without relief or frequent hydration could lead to heat
stroke. Even though it is not humid, your sweat cannot cool you
off fast enough. Soon, you stop sweating and then you get sick.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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 911.
