Calaveras County Public Health Issues Heat Advisory to Residents

San Andreas, CA...August 31, 2017...Calaveras County Health and Human Services Agency - Public Health Division in conjunction with Dignity Health Mark Twain Medical Center issues a heat advisory for the County. We urge the public to act now to prevent heat-related illness. Temperatures above 108 degrees or more will continue over the next several days. Dr. Kelaita, County Health Officer, stated, “Taking action now can prevent the possibility of heat-related illness. Some health conditions such as obesity, fever, dehydration, heart disease, poor circulation, sunburn and drug/alcohol use can make it harder for the body to stay cool in hot weather.”

If you are looking for a place to get out of the heat, see below:

 Any business open to the public

In addition:
Calaveras County Health and Human Services – Sequoia Room
509 East St. Charles Street
San Andreas, CA 95249
Open Friday, 9/1/2017 until 8:00 pm

Mark Twain Medical Center Classrooms
768 Mountain Ranch Road
San Andreas, CA 95249
Open Saturday 9/2/2017, Sunday 9/3/2017, Monday 9/4/2017 from 2-8 pm

During this heat wave, be sure to:

 Drink plenty of water
o Take enough water for yourself and those traveling with you when you leave home
o Avoid drinks with caffeine (tea, coffee, and soft drinks)
o Avoid alcoholic beverages
o Provide plenty of water for pets

 Stay cool, stay indoors
o Stay in an air conditioned area, if possible
o If you do not have air conditioning, go to a place that is air conditioned
o Take a cool shower or bath

 Wear light clothing and sunscreen when outdoors
o Choose lightweight, light-colored, and loose-fitting clothing
o Wear a wide-brimmed hat
o Use sunscreen when outside (SPF 15 or higher) and reapply every two hours when in the sun

 Plan outdoor activities for the cooler parts of the day
o Avoid being out during the hottest part of the day
o Rest often in a shady area
o Never leave children or pets in a parked car

 Pace yourself
o Take frequent, regularly scheduled breaks
o If you don’t feel well (for example: heart pounds, out of breath, lightheaded, confused, weak or faint) stop your activity and rest in a cool or shady area

 Stay in touch with your family, friends, and neighbors daily
o For those with health conditions and the elderly, check in more often
o Have others check on you

Heat related illness can be prevented by taking these steps, especially during a heat wave. “Don’t overestimate what you can do during a heat wave; assume it should be less than your normal level of activity,” stated Dr. Kelaita.

The warning signs of heat illness include heavy sweating, cramps, headache, nausea or vomiting, tiredness, weakness, dizziness and fainting. For more information about prevention and signs of heat-related illness, visit, call Public Health at 209-754-6460 or

Wow, the state of Calif looks like one of those gay bumper stickers turned sideways.
So please come to Murphys Park on Sept 2nd, where the Tri-County LGBT will be celebrating Abnormal Day with things to eat like Hot Dogs (mmm, big, juicy, wieners guys ;o)) beer and I'm sure some kid of really fun things to do. So come on and turn the other cheek and let your hair down and just have some fun. Maybe a few more cowboys will want to see a special rerun of Broke Back Mountain like last year? YEEEHAWWW

I find it ludicrous the county is assuming all businesses that are open can take people for hours at a time. And the county building will be closed at 5 p.m. today so that's out for tomorrow and the rest of the long, hot weekend. Where is the compassion? Why don't the BOS call for the OES person to open cooling centers??!! That's what our CERT volunteers are trained to do!! Our low income and elderly citizens need more than a press release written on paper! Get to work, guys!!!

    Did you read the actual article? It says county buildings were open until 8pm last night as a cooling center and today, tomorrow and Monday the hospital is open as a cooling center.
