      * location...Hillsborough NH and Essex...Middlesex...Norfolk...
      and Suffolk counties in MA.

      * Impacts...persons outdoors for prolonged periods of time on
      Independence day could be more susceptible to heat illnesses.
      Drink plenty of fluids and stay out of the sun when possible.

      Precautionary/preparedness actions...

      A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
      expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
      will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
      possible. Avoid prolonged work in the sun or in poorly ventilated
      areas. Drink plenty of fluids...stay in an air-conditioned
      environment...stay out of the sun...and check in on relatives and
      neighbors.

      Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
      possible...reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
      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
      heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
      is an emergency - call 9 1 1.
