Subject: "Dont Fry Day" Friday, May 27, 2016: Excessive
Heat

and Sun Safety Guidance for 2016 Season

Friday, May 27, 2016, 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.

In addition, NWS is supporting the Federal Emergency
Management

Agencys (FEMA) first ever Extreme Heat Week, May 22-28, as
part

of its PrepareAthon. One of the weeks activities includes a

White House webinar entitled, "Building Community
Preparedness

to Extreme Heat." The webinar will be held May 26, 2 PM to
3:30

PM EDT. During the White House webinar, experts from federal
and

local government, as well as other organizations, will share

information on the impacts of extreme heat. Also, the webinar

will focus on vulnerable populations such as children,
athletes,

the elderly and outdoor workers. Experts will also highlight

actions that individuals, caregivers, public-health
officials,

and emergency responders can take to prepare for extreme-heat

events. Registration information for this webinar briefing
may

be accessed at:

https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4711595715548871170.

A new interagency portal, the National Integrated Heat Health

Information System (NIHHIS), has been developed to provide a

one-stop-shop for access to federal government heat safety

information that can be used to reduce the health impacts of

extreme heat. NIHHIS was developed in collaboration with NOAA

and CDC, and includes heat safety information from FEMA, OSHA

and several other agency partners. See
http://climate.gov/nihhis

for more information.

Heat 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
ultraviolet

(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.

Please see this link for some essential heat and UV resources

provided by NWS partners that provide information on how to

prevent adverse effects of excessive heat and UV exposure.

Please use these resources throughout this summer to help us

build a Weather-Ready Nation.

http://www.nws.noaa.gov/om/heat/resources/dontfry.pdf

All of our 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. Never leave children, pets, or the elderly unattended in a

parked vehicle, not even for a minute.

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 30 or higher with broad

spectrum (both UVA and UVB rays) protection.

9. Seek shade whenever you can.

10. Know what the signs and symptoms of 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 groups

should pay close attention to the above tips, particularly

during heat waves in areas where excessive heat is rare.
