A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The hot temperatures will 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 the next few days. To reduce risk during
outdoor work, the occupational safety and health administration

conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved
to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency, call
