The ongoing heat wave is forecast to continue impacting our area with only slight relief tomorrow. Sunday may prove to be hottest day of the stretch with the high temperature for Flemington currently forecast to be 100 degrees (not the actual feels like temperature after factoring in humidity, etc.).
With high temperatures forecast to be in the mid-90° range through Sunday, cooling centers have been activated around the county. A list of these centers as well as the hours of operation are pictured above.
Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. Take extra precautions if you work or
spend time outside. When possible reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible.
To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments.
Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency!
In case of an emergency Call 9 1 1.
