Heat Emergency Message

The Anne Arundel County Police Western District would like to make you aware of the following:

The current extreme heat emergency may cause serious illness and possibly death, and I would like to make the following recommendations suggested by our county health department:

If you or someone you know experiences headache, confusion, dizziness, nausea, or a rapid heartbeat, please get immediate medical attention.

Stay in a cool place. If you do not have air conditioning, go somewhere that has it.

Visit a movie theater, the mall, a friend or relative's home, community senior center or a cooling center in your area.

Make sure you check in with family or friends every day if you live by yourself.

Ask for help if you need it. Family, friends and neighbors can provide assistance.

Drink plenty of fluids like water, but avoid alcohol and caffeinated beverages.

Never leave children or pets alone in a car."
