Public Health Preparedness

 
Stay safe during hot weather.

Summertime heat can be dangerous for anyone. Some people are at risk of serious health effects – even death – from getting overheated. Health risks include dehydration, heat cramps, heat exhaustion, heat stroke, and worsening of health conditions.

Heat risk levels

 
Prepare for a heat wave:

  • Know the symptoms of heat-related illnesses.
  • Make sure that you can open your windows and/or that your air conditioner is working properly.
  • Find out where cooling centers are near you, and when they are open.
  • Choose someone that you can call for help or who can check on you.
  • Talk to your doctor or pharmacist to learn more about medications that might make you sensitive to the sun or heat.

Overheated?

Heat-related illnesses occur when the body is unable to cool itself. The most common heat-related illnesses are heat stroke (sun stroke), heat exhaustion, heat cramps and heat rash. Here are the symptoms and first-aid responses. Click here for a NYSDOH web page of symptoms and first-aid responses.

 
Cooling Centers:

Cooling centers are facilities where you can go to cool off during extreme heat. If a cooling center is not available, libraries, supermarkets, malls, and community swimming pools are great places to stay cool.
