The temperature and heat index will be elevated today. Limit outdoor work or indoor work in spaces that are not air conditioned. If work is required in locations with elevated temperatures, please contact Jennifer Williams at 7882 (pager 584-7882 ) for recommendations on work/rest times and rehydration requirements. IH Staff will be reviewing outdoor work and passing out Gatorade this afternoon.
We expect a break from the heat this evening.
