EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING FROM
|Please be patient with our crews during this time. To avoid prolonged heat exposure, they will be arriving early in the morning and may have slow production output.|
Tips you can use from the National Weather Service:
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and CDC recommend these additional steps to reduce risk during outdoor work:
Use Common Sense
Drink Plenty of Fluids
Increase your fluid intake, regardless of your activity level. Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink. During heavy exercise in a hot environment, drink two to four glasses (16-32 ounces) of cool fluids each hour.
Warning: If your doctor generally limits the amount of fluid you drink or has you on water pills, ask how much you should drink while the weather is hot.
Don't drink liquids that contain alcohol, or large amounts of sugar-these actually cause you to lose more body fluid. Also avoid very cold drinks, because they can cause stomach cramps.
Replace Salt and Minerals
Heavy sweating removes salt and minerals from the body. These are necessary for your body and must be replaced. If you must exercise, drink two to four glasses of cool, non-alcoholic fluids each hour. A sports beverage can replace the salt and minerals you lose in sweat. However, if you are on a low-salt diet, talk with your doctor before drinking a sports beverage or taking salt tablets.
