Preventing Heat Illness

Heat is one of the leading weather-related killers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that an average of 658 deaths are directly attributable to heat each year in the United States. Exposure to excessive heat can exacerbate many pre-existing health conditions, (e.g., cardiovascular, cerebral, and respiratory diseases), contributing to deaths from heart attacks, strokes, or respiratory ailments.
