Extreme heat events occur when uncommonly high temperatures are experienced for at least two consecutive days. During extreme heat events, you are at higher risk of heat-related illness.

Too much heat can be harmful to your health and, in severe cases, can lead to heat stroke (sunstroke), which can be life threatening. Heat stroke is a medical emergency – call 9-1-1 if you or a person you are caring for has high body temperature, confusion and/or is unconscious.
