EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM THURSDAY TO 8 PM MST FRIDAY

Overexposure can cause heat cramps and heat exhaustion to develop and, without intervention, can lead to heat stroke.

Afternoon temperatures may range from 110 to 114, with overnight lows in the mid 80s.

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a period of very hot temperatures, even by local standards, will occur. Actions should be taken to lessen the impact of the extreme heat.

  • Stay indoors and seek air-conditioned buildings.
  • Drink water, more than usual, and avoid dehydrating alcoholic, sugary, or caffeinated drinks.
  • Dress for the heat - lightweight and light-colored clothing.
  • Eat small meals and eat more often.
  • Monitor those with a higher vulnerability to heat, including small children.
  • Check in on family, friends, and neighbors, especially the elderly.
  • If engaging in outdoor activity, take longer and more frequent breaks and avoid the hottest parts of the day.
  • Never leave kids or pets unattended in cars.
  • Public cooling shelters are available in some areas. Consult county officials for more details.

Recognize the signs and symptoms of heat-related illness. Early signs include thirst and muscle cramps.

Heat exhaustion may include: cool, moist, pale skin; headache; dizziness; weakness or exhaustion; nausea. The most serious illness is heat stroke, which may include: vomiting; confusion; throbbing headache; decreased alertness or loss of consciousness; high body temperature (above 105F); hot, dry skin; rapid, weak pulse; rapid, shallow breathing; seizures.

Heat stroke can be DEADLY. Treat as an emergency and call 9 1 1.
