neighbors.

Take extra precautions... if you work or spend time outside. When
possible... reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or

stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible
and drink plenty of water.

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.
