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

is an emergency... call 9 1 1.

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of

vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
