What to Know During the Excessive Heat Warning
Yes, it's hot! And besides complaining about the heat, you should be aware of what to do and what not to do if you must be outside.
Several things come to mind if you will be spending time outdoors during any heat wave:
- Do you have enough water?
- Do you have temporary shade available?
- Do you know the symptoms of heat illness?
- Do you know who to call in an emergency?
Just like camping, be prepared. The National Weather Service has some great information. Make sure you have a hat, the right clothing and sunscreen too.
