Outdoor Workers Dealing With Heat Wave and Dangerous Temperatures

Weekend.

As cameron mentioned?

The heat index in the evansville area is on it way up to more than 100 degrees.

The tr?state is right in the path of the warmer weather?

Sweeping through parts of the country?

And people are definitely feeling the impact in the tr?state.

These temperatures can be dangerously hot?

And some people aren't able to escape the heat.

Amanda porter talked with people working through the warmer weather?

And she joins us now in evansville with more.

Amanda?

It doesn't take long to feel the effects of the heat.

You might see some of it on me.

But a few beads of sweat are the least of the problems for those whose jobs are outdoors.

For them staying cool in these hot temperatures can be a job in and of itself.

The volunteers for henderson's habitat for humanity can tell us a thing or two about how extreme heat can affect you.

With temperatures pushing the heat index to more than 100 degrees?

It can take a toll on the human body.

That's why they make sure they stay hydrated?

Providing several liquids for workers and providing shade where possible in the way of taking breaks.

The dry weather is ideal for outdoor work.

"we are typically right now starting an hour earlier than we normally would so they are in geting their trucks ready 630 7 oclock out the door by 730."

I usually want them back by the time it is getting hot/ landscapers say communicatio n is a must.

"i trust that whenever they are out if its really hot and they are overheated then theyre gonna call me and let me know if we need to reschedule something."

All the talk about being safe isn't just for those working in it.

Walking, running, or going out for an extended period of time can be an issue.

The national weather service suggests?

Drinking plenty of water even if you don't feel thirsty.

You should try to minimize direct exposure to the sun.

Also slow down, and reduce the time you spent outside?

But some workers don't have that option.

"we have water here that they can take out with then in the morning.

Thye also have water jugs but they can also bring their own gatorade and water."

Out door workers still have to wear their standard uniforms. "for liquid applications per the state we have to wear long sleeves so we adhere to that but we try to stay as cool as possible."

Its also recommended to check on older, sick, or frail people who may need help responding in the heat.

Reporting in evansville.

Amanda porter,
