🔥The Heat Is Back On🔥

We are in for another round of extreme heat in many parts of the state this week. Please share the following safety tips with your family, friends and communities to stay safe.

✅Safety Tips
• Never leave a child, adult, or animal alone inside a vehicle on a warm day.
• Find places with air conditioning. Libraries, shopping malls, and community centers can provide a cool place to take a break from the heat. If you need a cooling center visit nj211.org or call NJ 2-1-1 for a cooling center near you.
• If you’re outside, find shade. Wear a hat wide enough to protect your face.
• Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
• Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated. If you or someone you care for is on a special diet, ask a doctor how best to accommodate it.
• Do not use electric fans when the temperature outside is more than 95 degrees, as this could increase the risk of heat-related illness. Fans create air flow and a false sense of comfort, but do not reduce body temperature.
• Avoid high-energy activities.
• Check yourself, family members, and neighbors for signs of heat-related illness.

Excessive Heat Watch

Summer is heating up again! The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued an Excessive Heat Watch, which is in effect through Wednesday evening.

* HEAT INDEX VALUES: Up to 101 due to temperatures in the mid 90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

* TIMING: High temperatures in and around Philadelphia will be in the lower 90s on Sunday, and then near 95 on Monday and Tuesday. This, along with surface dewpoints in the lower 70s, results in a heat index approaching 100 on Sunday, and then up to 101 on Monday and Tuesday. The heat and humidity could last into Wednesday.

* IMPACTS: The heat and humidity may cause heat stress during outdoor exertion or extended exposure.

* PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS: An Excessive Heat Watch means that a prolonged period of hot temperatures is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a DANGEROUS SITUATION in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.

Our partners at NJ 2-1-1 post cooling sites as they learn of them from municipal and county governments. You can find them at www.nj211.org/nj-cooling-centers or by calling NJ 2-1-1. Learn tips on staying safe in summer heat at www.nj211.org/summer-heat.

⚠️Reminder! NEVER leave children, pets or those vulnerable to the heat unattended in a parked car. Not even for a minute! The consequences are deadly. For more information visit www.acf.hhs.gov/ecd/interagency-projects/look-before-you-lock.

Check your local weather. For those living in Central and Southern New Jersey visit US National Weather Service Philadelphia/Mount Holly www.weather.gov/phi/. For those living in Northern New Jersey and the New York Metro area visit US National Weather Service New York NY www.weather.gov/okx/.
