Hot weather on the way – help us keep cool! 

We’re expecting unusually hot weather this week with record high temperatures likely Wednesday and Thursday, and the possibility of 100-degree weather in and around King County.  

The Facilities Management Division (FMD) is committed to your safety and comfort at work, and to running King County buildings as efficiently as possible. To help us all keep cooler as the weather heats up, here are a few tips: 

  • Lower the blinds in your work area to reduce sunlight streaming in 
  • Keep windows and doors closed when the air conditioning is on 
  • Dress for the weather conditions 
  • Turn off unnecessary lights, and unplug unused electrical equipment if possible. 

For a reminder, feel free to print out and post the FMD Summer Heat Reminder Flyer in your workspace.  

Thanks, and keep cool!
