The National Weather Service has issued a few tips to those who have to be outdoors in the oppressive hot weather.

They advise to reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or the evening.

Know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) adds that you should schedule frequent rest breaks if you're working outside.

If someone becomes overwhelmed by the heat move them to the shade or indoors, and call 911.
