Heat Advisory: Sat. June 17- Tues. June 20

Here are some safety tips to stay cool and avoid the heat:

  • Drink plenty of water; even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine. Persons who have epilepsy or heart, kidney, or liver disease; are on fluid-restricted diets; or have a problem with fluid retention should consult a doctor before increasing liquid intake.
  • Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles.
  • Check on family, friends, and neighbors who do not have air conditioning and who spend much of their time alone.
  • Check on your animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat.
  • Go to a designated public shelter if your home loses power during periods of extreme heat. Stay on the lowest floor out of the sunshine if air conditioning is not available.
  • Check the weather/listen to NOAA Weather Radio for critical updates from the National Weather Service (NWS).
  • List of San Bernardino Cooling Centers.

OFFICE OF EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS

The Town of Apple Valley’s Office of Emergency Preparedness (OEP) supports the community by administering the National Preparedness Goal of Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response and Recovery.  OEP is actively coordinating the Town’s response to disasters and emergencies as well as aiding residents, businesses and visitors in preparedness for major catastrophes both natural and man-made.

OEP works with local, state and federal government partners, as well as non-governmental organizations to achieve this goal.  OEP maintains the town’s Emergency Operations Center, is an active partner with the County of San Bernardino’s Operational Area Coordinating Council and participates in regular training and exercises to test and update the town’s Emergency Operations Plan to insure a state of constant readiness. In addition the Town updates our Hazard Mitigation Plan on a 5 year cycle and is currently in the process of updating.
