      EXTREME HEAT ADVISORY

      The Wayland Health Department has issued an extreme heat advisory effective through Saturday. Cooling areas are available in town.

      The advisory emphasizes:

      -- People 65 years and older, infants, children and people with chronic medical conditions are more prone to heat stress.

      -- Air-conditioning is the best protector against heat-related illness and death. During conditions of extreme heat, spend time in locations with air-conditioning such as shopping malls, public libraries, or public health sponsored heat-relief shelters in your area.

      -- Listen to local news and weather channels or contact the public health department (508-358-3617) for health and safety updates.

      -- Drink cool, nonalcoholic beverages and increase your fluid intake, regardless of your activity level.

      -- Avoid sun during hottest hours. If you must be outside, seek shade or limit time in the sun.

      -- Cooling areas are available in the Town Building and the Public Safety Building through Saturday, and beyond if necessary.

      -- If you need assistance, call the Public Safety line: 508-358-4721.
