An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot weather is expected, during which heat illnesses
are likely. Stay in an air-conditioned building and check up on
relatives and neighbors. Postpone any non-essential outdoor
activities planned during the midday and afternoon. If outdoor
activities are necessary, drink plenty of water, wear light and
loose fitting clothing, reduce strenuous activities, and take
frequent breaks. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a
cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency, call
9 1 1.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
