Estimating the heat index is nearly 106 degrees, the National Weather Service has issued another heat advisory for our area.
“If you must be outdoors, drink plenty of fluids, wear light weight clothing and stay out of direct sunshine,” ad advisory from the Liberty Emergency Management Agency said. “In addition, know the signs of heat illnesses and be sure to check on those who are most vulnerable to the heat such as young children and the elderly. Never leave children or pets in a vehicle.
“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 911.”
