Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. Hot temperatures will create a situation in which heat
related illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in
an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sunshine, and check up
on relatives and neighbors.

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.
