Safely and Healthily Living through Hot Weather

Hot and humid summer weather can cause heat illness and even death. More Americans die from heat waves than all other natural disasters combined. Older adults, people with chronic medical conditions or mental health conditions, are most vulnerable.

Heat illness occurs when the body cannot cool down. The most serious forms of heat illness are heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Heat stroke occurs when the body's temperature rises quickly, and can rapidly lead to death. Keeping cool can be hard work for the body. This extra stress on the body can also worsen other health conditions such as heart and lung disease.
