The City of Patterson and West Stanislaus County Fire Agencies have released a press release predicting that a dangerous heat wave will have the community at high risk until 8 p.m. Thursday, July 4.

A high, strong pressure over northern Cali. has caused the fire agencies to call for a heat warning and ensure extra precautions for citizens, such as wearing light weight, loose fitting clothes, drinking water, and knowing the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

"In addition to the hot days, overnight lows will be in the 70s to lower 80s, offering minimal relief," the release said.

Cool zones are located at the Patterson City Hall on 1 Plaza, Monday to Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the Hammon Senior Center at 1033 W. Las Palmas Ave., Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The fire agencies also urge anyone who encounters a heat related injury or illness to contact 911 immediately.
