Community: Heat Advisory in the City of Los Angeles from the Emergency Management Department
A Heat Advisory for the LA Region will be in effect from 11:00AM Wednesday, April 6, 2022 to 6:00PM PDT Friday, April 8, 2022. Temperatures could reach 100 degrees in parts of Los Angeles. As temperatures rise, the City of Los Angeles urges Angelenos to prepare for the heat. Residents and visitors can keep cool by staying in shade or a building with air conditioning and drinking plenty of water. If you do not live in an air-conditioned building, you may take refuge at a library, recreation facility, senior center or other public air-conditioned building. 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. Check on neighbors or others who may be sensitive to heat. 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. See an explanation of signs and symptoms in the graphic at the website. 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! Call 911. Non-emergency information can be found by calling 311.
