Extreme Heat Safety
Protect yourself and those you love by preparing for extended days of excessive heat. Heat-related deaths rank among the highest of all weather-related hazards. Sensitive groups are especially vulnerable: elderly, children, sick people, and animals.
- Plan your outdoor activities accordingly. Try to schedule activities in the morning or evening when temperatures will be cooler, and with less exposure to direct sunlight.
- 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 heatstroke. Wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water
