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.




Air Quality Alert
Issued: 9:59 AM EDT Jul. 16, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Air quality alert is in effect from 11 am until 11 PM today...

The New York state department of environmental conservation has
issued an air quality health advisory for the following counties...

Dutchess and Ulster.

Air quality levels in outdoor air are predicted to be greater than an
air quality index value of 100 for ozone. The air quality index... or

pollutants to one scale. The higher the aqi value, the greater the
health concern.

When pollution levels are elevated... the New York state department of
health recommends that individuals consider limiting strenuous outdoor
physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse health effects. People
who may be especially sensitive to the effects of elevated levels of
pollutants include the very Young and those with pre existing
respiratory problems such as asthma or heart disease. Those with
