    Precautionary/preparedness actions...

    A heat advisory is issued for New York City when the combination
    of heat and humidity is expected to make it feel like it is at
    least 95 degrees for two or more consecutive days... or 100 degrees
    for any length of time.

    To reduce risk during outdoor work... the occupational safety and
    health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
    in shaded or air conditioned environments.

    Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health
    conditions are at an increased risk. Homes without air
    conditioning can be much hotter than outdoor temperatures.

    Use air conditioning to stay cool at home or go to a place that
    has air conditioning. To find a NYC cooling center call 3-1-1 or
    visit NYC.Gov/oem.
