FARMINGTON, MO (KDKZ-TV) Summer will officially be here in a couple of weeks; however we are starting to get a taste of what summer has to offer.
As the heat and humidity continues to rise across Southeast Missouri, concerns of getting over heated grow.
Farmington Fire Chief Todd Mecey says if you have to work outside, you need to take it easy.
“People are not accustomed to it. They are still going to be out working all day in the heat, and we see a higher frequency of heat stress type of emergencies whenever we have these extended periods.”
If you feel overheated, you need to slowly cool off. If you are experiencing heat exhaustion or heat stroke, you need to seek medical attention immediately by calling 911.
