EXCESSIVE HEAT SAFETY: Heat is another dangerous form of severe weather. Heat stroke and heat exhaustion are preventable if you know what symptoms to look for.
Heat Stroke Symptoms:
If you have any of these symptoms: Immediately stop what you are doing and call 9-1-1. Move to a cool location and begin to lower the body temperatures with either cool clothes or a bath. Do not give or take any fluids.
Heat Exhaustion Symptoms:
If you have any of these symptoms: Immediately stop what you or the person are doing and move inside or to a cooler place. Once inside or in a cooler place, lie down and sip water as well as loosen any tight clothing. If vomiting continues, seek medical attention.
