Beat the Heat. Extreme Heat can Kill.

Beat the Heat

With climate change, we can expect to experience more extreme heat during the summer and we encourage everyone to be safe in the heat and stay informed about heat-related health risks.

What is Extreme Heat?

An Extreme Heat emergency is when daytime and nighttime temperatures get hotter every day and are well above seasonal norms. Extreme heat is dangerous for the health and wellbeing of our communities and is responsible for the highest number of weather-related deaths annually.

Risks of extreme heat include:

  • Heat illness
  • Air quality
  • Allergies
  • Pests & Infectious Diseases
