Extreme Heat

Heat waves are becoming increasingly common in the U.S. and California is seeing its fair share of extreme temperatures. Because heat waves are growing in frequency, Californians will need to do more to protect themselves from heat-related illnesses.

Health and age play a significant role in how people react to extreme heat. By knowing how to prepare for a heat wave, and what to do when one occurs, you can avoid the biggest health dangers, such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
