       Heat Awareness

(MADISON) – Heat can kill. Hundreds of people die from extreme heat events each year in the United States. That’s why Governor Scott Walker has declared Thursday, June 9th as Heat Awareness Day. Wisconsin Emergency Management, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the National Weather Service are reminding people of the dangers associated with extreme heat and to promote community safety and health.

“Heat related deaths and illness are preventable,” says Major General Don Dunbar, Adjutant General and Wisconsin’s Homeland Security Advisor. “People need to be aware of who is at greatest risk and what can be done to prevent the loss of life.”

 

Remember these tips:

  • Stay Cool: Stay in air-conditioned buildings as much as possible and avoid direct sunlight
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water and don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink
  • Stay Informed: Watch your local weather forecasts so you can plan activities safely when it’s hot outside. Watch for any extreme heat alerts.

People at higher risk of a heat-related illness include:

  • Infants and young children
  • People 65 years of age and older
  • People who are overweight
  • People with chronic medical conditions

Where you are most at risk:

  • Homes with little or no air conditioning
  • Cars

Many victims of heat-related deaths are socially isolated, maintaining little contact with family and friends. This is why it is important to check in on family, friends, and neighbors during extreme heat. Those most vulnerable include very young children, the elderly, and people with heart disease or high blood pressure. Individuals who are on certain medications may also be more susceptible to illnesses during extreme heat events.

Many cities and counties across Wisconsin open cooling centers during periods of extreme heat. These centers are a great place for people to come into an air conditioned facility and get some relief from the heat. ReadyWisconsin will list open cooling centers on our website: http://readywisconsin.wi.gov.
