ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

     An Albany businessman is making sure some outdoor workers are staying hydrated during this heat wave.

     The owner of Cinnabon gave out frozen lemonade drinks to workers at D.J.'s Oil Change and Car wash on Stuart Avenue this afternoon after the workers cleaned out his car out in the heat.
     With heat advisories likely much of the week, workers say they'll take precautions.


"I just try to make sure that we kept our word and just trying to make sure that they stay cool during these hot Summer months,” said Frank Ross, Owner of Albany Cinnabon.


"Well I bring ice water, Gatorade. We drink Powerade out here,” said Michael Wingfield, D.J.’s Employee.

 

  The Georgia Emergency Management Agency says this is typically the hottest week of the year in the state.
     See some heat safety tips from GEMA below:

The Georgia Emergency Management Agency/Homeland Security (GEMA/HS) Ready Georgia campaign offers the following tips to help beat the heat this week:  

  1. Stay indoors in air-conditioned spaces as much as possible, and limit exposure to the sun.
  2. Make sure your home is well-insulated, and cover windows with shades or drapes. Consider installing weather stripping around your doors and window sills to keep the cool air inside. This also helps keep your energy costs down.
  3. Avoid strenuous work during the warmest part of the day. Use a buddy system when working in extreme heat, and take frequent breaks.
  4. Dress in loose-fitting, lightweight and light-colored clothes that cover as much skin as possible. Protect your face and head with wide-brimmed hats.
  5. Never leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles.
  6. Familiarize yourself with the medical conditions that can result from over-exposure to heat, including heat exhaustion and heat stroke to help lessen health threats and harm.
  7. Check on family, friends, and neighbors who do not have air conditioning and who spend much of their time alone.
  8. Make sure pets have plenty of water and shade. Be careful to not over-exercise them, and keep them indoors when it's extremely hot.
  9. Conserve water in your household to help prevent drought: wash only full loads of dishes and laundry, fix household leaks, and consider installing low-flow toilets and showerheads.
  10. Closely monitor a local radio station, TV station or NOAA Weather Radio for the latest information on excessive heat watches and warnings.
