Extreme Heat: Impacts on Your Health

Stay hydrated.

What are the health impacts of extreme heat?

Most heat-related illnesses occur when victims have been overexposed to heat or have over-exercised for their age and/or physical condition. When extreme heat is at its most deadly, it kills by forcing the human body beyond its capacity to cool itself down, slowing the processes by which normal body temperature is maintained.

Who’s at risk?

Heat-related illnesses and deaths are preventable. When extreme heat occurs, it’s important to be aware of those at greatest risk for experiencing its effects: the very young, the elderly, and people with chronic diseases and/or mental illness. Even young and healthy individuals, however, can succumb to heat if they take part in overly strenuous physical exercise outdoors during hot weather.

People living in urban areas are at high risk also, thanks to the poor air quality of many large cities and often-stagnant atmospheric conditions, which trap pollutants in the air. When people breathe in these pollutants, they can trigger a wide range of respiratory problems.

Asphalt and concrete also store heat longer and gradually release heat at night, leading to higher evening temperatures. Known as the urban “heat island” effect, this can prevent or reduce nighttime relief from extreme heat in a large city.
