Those without air conditioning, elderly, small children, and pets are especially susceptible. Plan ahead. Have a cool place to shelter from the heat. Avoid outdoor activity, especially strenuous ones, during the peak heating times of the day. 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. The extended duration of heat, combined with nearly full sunshine, and oppressive warmth even at night will lead to potentially hazardous conditions, particularly for the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions. Residents of the city of Chicago can call 3...1...1...to request well being checks for elderly friends or family members, or for information on finding the nearest cooling center. &&
