EMSA issued a medical heat alert after responding to several suspected heat-related calls Tuesday.
As of 8 p.m. EMSA medics responded to six calls with patients ranging in age from 20 to 72 years old.
Five of the six patients were transported non-emergent, EMSA spokeswoman Kelli Bruer said.
EMSA is urging citizens to make a plan to stay safe.
Plan the amount of time you think will be outdoors and take appropriate amounts of water or other fluids with you, even if just planning for a short amount of outdoor time, EMSA said.
Emergencies can happen and you could be stranded outdoors longer than expected.
Always have a cell with you to call 911, if needed.
Plan your schedule to allow for frequent breaks indoors, if possible.
