Keep cool when the heat is on!

We are expecting more hot weather this week and next. Now is a great time to remember that, although the sun is beautiful, it can make our work environment warm and uncomfortable for some.

The Facilities Management Division 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:

  • Close 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.
