Extreme Heat Safety

Summer is the favorite season for many, due to the warm weather and endless opportunities for outdoor fun and adventure. However, the summer weather can also be very dangerous if proper precautions aren’t taken, both outside and inside. As temperatures rise, please be sure to take the proper actions to keep yourself and your loved ones safe from heat-related illnesses like heat stroke, heat exhaustion, and heat cramps.

Heat-related illnesses happen when the body isn’t able to properly cool itself. This can cause damage to the brain and other vital organs and can result in death. Ready.gov says extreme heat is responsible for the highest number of annual deaths among all weather-related hazards. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year in the U.S., an average of 702 heat-related deaths occur. Additionally, 9,235 people are hospitalized, and 67,512 people visit emergency departments due to heat.

While anyone can suffer from heat-related illnesses, the CDC identifies these groups as high-risk:

  • Infants and young children
  • People 65 years of age or older
  • People who are overweight
  • People who overexert during work or exercise
  • People who are physically ill, especially with heart disease or high blood pressure, or who take certain medications, such as for depression, insomnia, or poor circulation

You can learn more about protecting vulnerable groups from extreme heat here.
