Today, “temperatures expected to reach the mid 90's,” and “The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory in effect from noon to 8 p.m.”

The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory in effect for Carroll County today from noon to 8 p.m. in addition to an Air Quality Alert.

As we begin to experience excessive periods of heat the Westminster Fire Engine and Hose Co. No. 1, along with other health care partners, would like to remind the public of the dangers of prolonged heat exposure...

Some tips concerning heat exposure include...

People and animals should stay indoors.

If you don’t have air-conditioning, go to the malls or stores, cooling locations, or public buildings.

Drink more fluids, but avoid alcohol and high sugar drinks

When going out, wear light clothing and never leave any persons, especially infants or young children, or animals in a closed, parked vehicle

Although anyone at any time can suffer from heat-related illness, some people are at greater risk than others.  Check regularly on: Infants and young children; People aged 65 or older; People who have a mental illness; Those who are physically ill, especially with heart disease or high blood pressure.

Visit adults at risk at least twice a day and closely watch them for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke.  Infants and young children, of course, need much more frequent watching.

For more information see “Heat and Air Quality Alerts in Effect for Carroll County,” call 800-CDC-INFO, or visit their web site.  More information is also available at the Maryland Department of Health.

Se safe out there.
