Guidelines for Field Use During Inclement Weather

SEVERE HEAT

FRRPD will monitor temperature and humidity from the National Weather Service at www.weather.gov, and use these numbers to reference the heat index chart below.

The heat index, also know as the apparent temparture, is what the temperature feels like to the human body when relative humidity is combined with the air temperature.  

For example, if the air temperature is 100° F and the relative humidity is 55%, the heat index will be 124°F.  When the relative humidity is low, the apparent temperature can actually be lower than the air temperature. 

Base on the above information, program decisions will be made as follows:

RISK LEVELINDEX VALUEGUIDELINES
Low-Moderate80-89Outdoor programs may proceed as scheduled. Parents/coaches/staff will monitor participants.
Moderate90-104Use caution during outdoor activities. Increase fluid intake and rest periods.  Activity time may be reduced.
