IntroductionEdit

In instances where temperatures rise to very high levels, it is critical that you find some way to keep cool. Heatstroke can kill.

MitigationEdit

  • Stay in an air conditioned location.[1][2]
  • Drink water to counter fluids lost by sweat.[1][2]
  • Do not leave people or pets locked in cars.[1][2]
  • Wear loose light clothing that keeps the sun off your body.[3]
  • Heat Waves can make wildfires more likely.
