#HeatSafety Tips from @info4disasters

Here are some great HeatSafety Tips from @info4disasters

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol.

Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays.

Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day. Postpone outdoor games & activities. Use buddy system & take frequent breaks if work outdoors.

Check on your animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat.

Statement as of 3:01 PM CDT on June 26, 2012

… Air pollution watch level Orange…

Air pollution watch – level Orange – for Dallas-Fort Worth.

The Texas commission on environmental quality (tceq) has issued a
level Orange air pollution watch for the Dallas-Fort Worth area
for Wednesday, June 27, 2012.

Atmospheric conditions are expected to be favorable for producing
high levels of ozone air pollution in the Dallas-Fort Worth area
on Wednesday. Ozone levels could reach the level Orange
“unhealthy for sensitive groups” category.

Elevated concentrations of ozone can act as a lung irritant.
Individuals with chronic lung disease, such as asthma and
emphysema, as well as the elderly and Young children, are
particularly sensitive to ozone and should attempt to avoid
exposure. To avoid exposure, minimize exertion outdoors during
the mid-day to early evening hours or stay indoors in an air-
conditioned room during this time.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

You may be under the impression that the donations that are made to us are only used for DFW ALERTS. That is not true.

When DFW ALERTS is on scene at a structure fire or any major event where our brave men and women of the local Fire & Police departments are exposed to extream heat (Texas summers), we usually carry bottles of water for them and any victims who many need it. We naturally do not charge them for this. They are doing a hard job, heat stroke is a very real issue when you are fighting a fire or having to stand in the sun in a dark blue uniform.

Your donations help us inform you of Weather & Traffic conditions to help keep you and your family safe. They also allow us to provide you with video and photos of these and other events. But, most of all, your donations help us to provide a cool drink of water to the men and women who protect & serve us day in and day out.

Please consider making a donation, in any amount via PayPal to: dfwalerts@live.com
