Stay Safe During the Hot Summer Days

Exposure to excessive heat can cause illness, injury and death. Approximately 400 people die each year from exposure to heat due to weather conditions, and many more people die from health conditions that are made worse from exposure to excess heat.

Those at highest risk from heat (groups without access to air conditioning for at least a few hours of the day) include A) the elderly, B) socially isolated individuals (homebound, homeless, etc.), C) the physically disabled, D) persons with chronic medical conditions and E) infants.

You can escape the hot summer temperatures by going to indoor locations like libraries, malls, churches, movie theater lobbies and firestations.
