Today is National Heatstroke Prevention Day

The National Weather Service office in Peachtree City GA announced that today is National Heatstroke Prevention Day.  Heat is one of the leading killers due to weather across the nation, resulting in hundreds of fatalities each year.  Since farmers and extension agents spend a lot of time outdoors in sultry summer conditions, it is important to know when high temperatures are expected, how to prevent heatstroke and what to do when someone is affected.  You can find more information at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/os/heat/
