Subject: "Dont Fry Day" May 22, 2015: Excessive Heat and Sun

Safety Guidance for 2015 Season

May 22, 2015, has been declared national "Dont Fry Day" by
NWS

and the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention (NCSCP).
NWS

is taking part again this year with the Environmental
Protection

Agency (EPA), the Occupational Safety and Health
Administration

(OSHA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),
and

the NCSCP to promote sun-safe behaviors.

As we approach the 20th anniversary of the deadly July 1995
heat

wave, during which nearly 750 people died, we are tragically

reminded that heat is a silent killer. It is one of the
leading

weather-related killers in this country, resulting in
hundreds of

deaths each year. Heat-related death and illness are
preventable.

Yet heat claims more lives most years than floods, lightning
and

tornadoes combined.

Skin cancer, which can develop from overexposure to UV
radiation,

is the most common form of cancer in the United States.
Nearly

5 million people are treated for skin cancer each year in the

United States, at an estimated annual cost of $8.1 billion.
Skin

cancer can be serious, expensive, and sometimes even deadly.

Fortunately, most skin cancers can be prevented. The first
steps

are to know how to access the current heat and UV radiation

(UV Index) forecasts, and to know how to use them. Below are
some

essential heat and UV resources.

NWS provides heat-related Watch, Warning, and Advisory
products

to warn the public about excessive heat events on its
homepage:

www.weather.gov

This year NWS is conducting a national seasonal safety
campaign

designed to prepare the public for seasonal weather hazards.

Seasonal campaigns (winter, spring, summer, fall) will focus
on

the major weather hazards experienced around the country
during

each season. This seasonal approach allows NWS to focus
outreach

efforts on major weather hazards as they occur and to prepare
the

public for future extreme weather events.

Excessive heat safety toolkits, at the site listed below, are

included in the spring and summer campaigns. These materials

provide useful information on the dangers of extreme heat

exposure and tips for staying safe in the summer heat and
sun.

Please use the following resources throughout this summer to
help

us build a Weather-Ready Nation.

NWS is working to build a Weather-Ready Nation to improve the

nations readiness, responsiveness, and overall resilience

against extreme weather, water, and climate events -
including

extreme heat. The NWS Heat Safety web page provides
information

to enhance community resilience in the face of current and

projected increases in extreme heat events.

www.weather.gov/heatsafety

New NWS National Seasonal Safety Campaign Outreach Toolkits

(Summer Campaign toolkit available June 1) are available at:

www.weather.gov/safetycampaign

NWS provides an experimental national forecast map showing

elevated and alert UV levels for mid-day:

www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/stratosphere/uv_index/uv_alert.shtml

EPAs website offers hourly UV Index updates and sun safety
tips:

http://www2.epa.gov/sunwise

At the EPAs Sunwise website, you can access your local UV
Index

by ZIP code and signup to receive automated UV Alerts via
email.

You also can download the UV Index as a smart phone app that

showcases winning posters from the Sunwise with Shade poster
contest.

www.epa.gov/enviro/mobile/

Communities can access the EPAs Excessive Heat Events
Guidebook

developed in collaboration with the NWS, CDC and the
Department

of Homeland Security. The guide offers heat mitigation plans.

www.epa.gov/heatisland/about/heatguidebook.html

OSHA conducts an annual nationwide campaign to educate
workers

and employers about hazards of working in the heat and how to

prevent heat-related illnesses, starting with the Campaigns

life-saving, simple "Water.Rest.Shade." message.

OSHAs heat-related publications, including fact sheets,
training

guides, community posters, quick cards and social media
toolkit

are available in English and Spanish. OSHAs popular "Heat
Safety

Tool" smartphone application is available in English and
Spanish

for Android and was recently updated for iOS devices. The app

calculates the heat index using NWS information based on
current

location and provides a risk level and precautions to take
for

working outdoors.For the latest information on the 2015
campaign:

www.osha.gov/heat

NWS is working with OSHA to protect outdoor workers and
educate

employers during excessive heat and other weather-related
events

and emergencies. NWS will continue including specific outdoor

worker safety precautions in its Heat Advisories and
Excessive

Heat Warnings.

CDC leads the effort to reduce illness and death caused by
skin

cancer through education, surveillance and research efforts.
Skin

cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United
States.

The majority of skin cancers cases can be traced to UV
radiation.

You can reduce skin cancer risk by staying in the shade,
wearing

protective clothing, using sunscreen with broad spectrum (UVA
and

UVB rays) protection and Sun Protection Factor (SPF) 15 or

higher, and by avoiding tanning beds. Information on skin
cancer

statistics, prevention, and CDCs skin cancer initiatives is

available at:

www.cdc.gov/cancer/skin/

CDC collaborates with public health authorities to
communicate

the risks of extreme heat and to provide guidelines to assist

state and local health departments in their development of
city-

specific comprehensive heat emergency response plans. By
knowing

who is at risk and what prevention measures to take,
heat-related

illness can be prevented. CDC provides easily accessible

resources for members of the public, local health departments
and

other organizations, assisting ongoing outreach efforts to
those

most vulnerable to extreme heat events.

www.cdc.gov/extremeheat/

NCSCP represents the nations premier skin cancer
organizations,

researchers, clinicians, and advocates for the prevention of

melanoma and skin cancer. These 40 national organizations
include

the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Cancer
Society,

the Melanoma Research Foundation, and the Skin Cancer
Foundation

as well as federal agency partners and many other foundations
and

associations devoted to skin cancer prevention. Specific tips
on

preventing skin cancer as well as more than 35 "Dont Fry
Day"

resources, including media guides, posters, graphics, and an

Action Kit for Meteorologists are available at the National

Councils website:

www.skincancerprevention.org

The partners offer the following heat wave and UV safety tips
to

the public:

1. Slow down. Reduce, eliminated or reschedule strenuous work
or

recreational activities until the coolest time of the day.

2. Get acclimated. Gradually increase outdoor work and

recreational activities so your body adjusts to hot
conditions.

3. Dress in lightweight clothing, and wear UV-blocking
sunglasses

and a hat with at least a 2 to 3-inch brim all around.

4. Drink plenty of water or other non-alcoholic fluids. Avoid

drinking alcoholic beverages.

5. Do not take salt tablets unless directed by a physician.

6. Take frequent breaks during work or play. When its really

hot, spend more time in air-conditioned places or seek shade

outside, especially during midday hours.

7. Check the UV Index when planning outdoor activities to
prevent

overexposure to the sun. Avoid sunburns and intentional
tanning.

8. Generously apply sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher with broad

spectrum (both UVA and UVB rays) protection.

9. Seek shade whenever you can.

10. Know what the signs and symptoms or heat illness are.
Check

on workers, particularly those wearing protective suits.

Elderly persons, small children, chronic invalids, those on

certain medications or drugs, outdoor workers, persons with

weight and alcohol problems and caretakers for these people

should pay close attention to the above tips, particularly
during

heat waves in areas where excessive heat is rare.
