Heat Safety Awareness Day is observed in May and sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Weather Service, Analyze, Forecast and Support Office. On average, extreme heat has killed more people in the last ten years than any other weather phenomena. Remember, when you are in the heat, hydrate. Whether you feel thirsty or not, drink plenty of water to avoid becoming dehydrated, especially when you're working or exercising outside. Heat Safety Awareness Day also reminds people who are outdoors to keep up with the latest temperature and heat index forecasts and current readings. Know the warning signs of a heat illness, and how you can stay cool.
