      PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS.

      A HEAT ADVISORY MEANS THAT A PERIOD OF HOT TEMPS IS
      EXPECTED. THE COMBINATION OF HOT TEMPS & HIGH HUMIDITY
      WILL COMBINE TO CREATE A SITUATION IN WHICH HEAT ILLNESSES ARE
      POSSIBLE. DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS. STAY IN AN AIR-CONDITIONED
      ROOM. STAY OUT OF THE SUN. & CHECK UP ON RELATIVES AND
      NEIGHBORS.

      TAKE EXTRA PRECAUTIONS IF YOU WORK OR SPEND TIME OUTSIDE. WHEN
      POSSIBLE. RESCHEDULE STRENUOUS ACTIVITY TO EARLY MORNING OR
      EVENING. KNOW THE SIGNS & SYMPTOMS OF HEAT EXHAUSTION & HEAT
      STROKE. WEAR LIGHT WEIGHT & LOOSE FITTING CLOTHING WHEN
      POSSIBLE & 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 & SHADED LOCATION. HEAT STROKE
      IS AN EMERGENCY - CALL 9 1 1.
