Champaign-Urbana Public Health District and Champaign County Emergency Management Agency Urge the Public to Take Extra Precautions to Stay Safe in the Heat
The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) and the Champaign County Emergency Management Agency (CCEMA) urge everyone to watch for the symptoms of heat-related illness, and to take precautions to keep their families and communities safe.
Heat-related illness can take many forms ranging from a mild case of heat exhaustion to a more serious and life-threatening case of heat stroke. Heat-related illnesses occur when the body becomes unable to control its temperature. The body’s temperature rises rapidly and the body looses its ability to perspire and cool down. Rising to temperatures of 106 degrees or higher within 10 to 15 minutes can result in death or permanent disability if emergency treatment is not provided.

Telephone service to the Urbana City Building was fully restored about 9:45 a.m. today (July 18), as AT&T crews worked around the clock to splice together thousands of copper lines that were accidentally severed Friday afternoon by a city contractor.
The accident has left a significant number of land-line customers in Urbana without service and full restoration of service might take as long as Friday. AT&T has had crews of eight working on splicing together the copper lines, working 24 hours a day, since this weekend.
Five cables, each containing 2,400 pairs of lines, were damaged in the accident, two of them completely severed.
The incident occurred early Friday afternoon, when a city contractor was installing a new street light and damaged a large AT&T phone duct that had multiple cables in it, according to John Collins, Public Works operation manager.
