[ARCHIVED] Excessive Heat Warning—Be Prepared

sun 2

BOULDER CITY - The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning through Saturday at 9:00 p.m. The current forecast calls for highs of 112-114 Tuesday through Saturday in Boulder City, with lows hovering in the eighties. The City’s first responders and staff remind residents to take cares of themselves, their neighbors, and pets through these coming days.

Boulder City does not offer a standing cooling station. However, Michael Mays, acting City Manager, said, “We have a plan in place through our Emergency Operations Center to stand one up if there is a power outage lasting more than several hours.” 

The Senior Center of Boulder City offers an air-conditioned place for older residents Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. at 813 Arizona Street. There are also cooling stations offered in Henderson and Clark County; click here for details.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles. Car interiors can reach 180+ degrees in this heat, killing children or pets in ten minutes or less. Make sure children can’t get into a parked car by locking car doors and placing keys where kids can’t reach them. 

Extreme heat can cause health issues like dehydration, heat cramps, heat stroke and exhaustion. Drink plenty of non-alcoholic beverages, stay in a cool, air-conditioned room, avoid sun exposure. Avoid strenuous activity outdoors.  Know the symptoms of heat stroke and heat exhaustion:

  • HEAT STROKE: If someone has a throbbing headache, confusion, faints or loses consciousness, has a rapid pulse and/or a fever above 103-degrees, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.   Heat strokes can be deadly.
  • HEAT EXHAUSTION: Symptoms include dizziness, blurred vision, headache, fever, fatigue, nausea, rapid/shallow breaths, and/or severe sweating/clammy skin. Get the person into a cool environment right away, have them lie down and place cold, wet towels on neck and forehead to cool them down. If symptoms worsen or they do not recover in 60 minutes, seek medical assistance.
