DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - As temperatures rise, everyone is feeling the effects of the heat.
Especially for those people who are working outside.
With temperatures heading toward triple digits, Dougherty County EMS director says the most important thing people can do is plan ahead.
The early mornings are the coolest part of the day.
He says people should plan outdoor work and activities for the early morning hours and not at night.
"We get some calls for people that are overheated late in the evenings even when the sun is going down, it's still hot. The sun has heated up the earth so the heat is still there," said Greg Rowe, Albany EMS Director.
He said it's also important to drink lots of water and electrolytes to help your body fight the heat.
