Stay healthy in the heat

Heat causes more deaths in the U.S. each year than floods, storms, and lightning combined. Older adults, young children, outdoor workers, athletes, and people with a chronic medical condition, among others, are especially sensitive to negative health impacts from extreme heat. The number of extreme heat days in Los Angeles County is expected to rise in the coming decades due to climate change. Prepare yourself and your family now, before the next heat wave comes.
