Calaveras County Public Health Issues Heat Advisory to Residents

San Andreas, CA...June 11, 2019, Calaveras County Health and Human Services Agency - Public Health Division issues a heat advisory for the County. Temperatures of 95 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 county government facility
 County Library branches
 Any business open to the public

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, call Public Health at 209-754-6460 or visit www.facebook.com/calaveraspublichealth.

And if the power goes out what is the emergency plan when temps are over 100 for the fat, sick or elderly?

        One might think, the opposite of freezing in winter would be to have a heater. “Perhaps” in the summer it would be a good idea to have a cooler. Now, that’s called, rocket science.

    Then you need to go to the nearest grocery store and open the doors in the frozen food section, especially when all the addresses listed above will shut their doors on you at quitting time if they are even open that is.
    I do worry about our elders though. Many of our younger snowflakes don't seem to care about them unless there's something in it for them.
    Of course I'm not talking about all of them, 90% of those snowflakes I'm talking about are the young men they....oh wait, let me rephrase that
    " males" not men. For those useless ones who play their video games while their women go to work to bring home the bacon. They come home after work, get the kids to do homework, then they clean up after their mistake of a snowflake loser, cook for her kids and Mr Useless
    Face the fact ladies, get a BOB ( battery operated boyfriend) and dump the useless snowflake. Not only will you be happier, you'll save money, one less baby on your hands and some good person just may find YOU and treat YOU right for a change.
