Jordan- CDD urges public to take precautions during heatwave


(MENAFN - Jordan News Agency) Amman, May 20 (Petra) -- The Civil Defence Department (CDD) on Sunday urged the public to avoid direct sun exposure during the current heatwave in the Kingdom.

In a statement, the CDD also urged people to wear light and loose garments, hats and sunglasses, particularly those who work outdoors or are exposed to the sun, such as workers in the constructions and agricultural sectors, the nature of whose work requires long hours under direct sun exposure.

Children should also be prevented from going outdoors during peak hours, the department said, also warning citizens against power overloads due to the use of air conditioners and fans, and against using one plug for such electric devices.

In case of emergency, the CDD can be reached on 911, the statement added.
