PRESS RELEASE July 02, 2018Contact: Connie Conway
A Heat Advisory is currently in effect for our area.
A Heat Advisory is issued when the combination of heat and humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 95 to 99 degrees Fahrenheit for two or more consecutive days, or 100 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit for any length of time. This combination will increase the likelihood of heat related health concerns.
Here are some things to remember when a Heat Advisory is in effect:
Take these extra precautions if you work or spend time outside:
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments to reduce the risk during outdoor work. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.
Heat stroke is an emergency. Call 9 1 1.
After 4:30pm, you may reach The Suffolk County Dept. of Social Services Emergency at its after-hours telephone number: 631-854-91
