Heat safety reminder as summer temperatures continue

The next few days call for heat safety wherever you are. Heat related deaths and injuries are preventable. Know the symptoms, check on family and neighbors, and take precautions.

  • Job Sites: Stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade as often as possible.
  • Indoors: Check on the elderly, sick and those without AC.
  • Vehicles: NEVER leave kids or pets unattended – look before you lock.
  • Outdoors: Limit strenuous outdoor activities, find shade and stay hydrated.
