BE PREPARED

Extreme heat often results in the highest number of deaths each year among all weather-related hazards. Extreme heat is defined as a period of at least 2-3 days of high heat with temperatures above 90 degrees. The average temperature in Phoenix in July, according to The Weather Channel, is 106 degrees. Heat disorders strike when people spend too much time in the heat or overexert themselves. Older adults, young children, and people who are sick, overweight or have an underlying health condition are more susceptible to heat-related illness. 

❌ Avoid strenuous activity; cancel outdoor activities.

✔️ Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing.

✔️ Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day.

✔️ Use a buddy system when working in excessive heat and take frequent breaks.

✔️ Check-in on family, friends, and neighbors—especially those who are more vulnerable to the heat.

✔️ Prepare for hot overnight temperatures.

✔️ Drink before you're thirsty.

✔️ Wear sunscreen if you are going outside for an extended period.

✔️ Stay on the lowest floor out of the sunshine if air conditioning is not available.

✔️ In an emergency, call 911.

It is best to seek air-conditioned buildings or operate air-conditioning. There are several heat relief refuges and hydration stations available throughout the county to help you stay cool.
