Temperatures are expected to soar here in Portland, Oregon, reaching into the 90’s over this weekend and then cooling off later into next week.
Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) encourages you to “keep your cool” during the heatwave:
Simple measures such as the ones listed above can be taken to significantly reduce the chance of getting heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Please take precautions against heat related incidents. Remember, everyone is at risk when temperatures rise above 90 degrees but the elderly and the very young are most susceptible to heat and heat-related illnesses. PF&R asks everyone with elderly family members or neighbors to check on them throughout this heatwave and make sure that they are utilizing air conditioning or make other arrangements for them to stay cool and hydrated.
