The health department warns not to leave children or pets in a parked auto. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the occupational safety and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. "Extreme heat such as this is not just an inconvenience, it can be risky and even deadly, but we can protect ourselves, our families, and our neighbors if we take steps to remain cool and hydrated".

"If there's any cooling, it will be very slight", Pi said.
