An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of

temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a DANGEROUS

water, wear light weight and loose fitting clothing, stay in an
air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on
relatives and neighbors. When possible, reschedule strenuous
activities to the early morning or evening hours.

Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded
location. Heat stroke is an emergency, call 9 1 1.
