OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahomans have been dealing with dangerous heat for nearly two weeks, but EMSA announced that it is lifting its ‘Heat Alert.’

Since June 15, paramedics have received 65 emergency calls for heat related illnesses.

After storms moved through the area on Sunday, temperatures began to fall.

Even though a ‘Heat Alert’ is not in place, EMSA is still warning residents to pre-hydrate before going outdoors and to use caution when outside.

Also, wear light-colored clothing and take frequent breaks. Officials also stress that you should always carry your cell phone so that you can call for help if needed.
