Health officer warns of heat danger

Monday, July 13, 2015 — California Department of Public Health Director and State Health Officer Dr. Karen Smith is reminding everyone to stay cool and hydrated as temperatures across the state continue to climb.
    “California residents need to prepare themselves for what’s looking like a very hot, dry summer,” Smith said. “July and August are generally the hottest months of the summer season and we are already seeing very high temperatures. It is important that everyone stay cool, stay hydrated, stay inside and take other precautions to prevent heat-related illness.”
    Extreme heat poses a substantial health risk, especially for vulnerable populations including young children, the elderly, those with chronic diseases or disabilities, pregnant women and people who are socially isolated. Heat-related illness includes: cramps, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and death. Warning signs of heat-related illnesses may include heavy sweating, muscle cramps, weakness, headache and nausea. Vomiting, paleness, tiredness and dizziness can also be indicators of heat-related illness.
