About Extreme Heat (from SLO Co Office of Emergency Services)
Extreme heat results in more deaths annually than most other weather-related hazards. In extreme heat, evaporation is slowed and the human body must work harder to maintain a normal temperature. Extreme heat can occur quickly and not provide any warning, especially in older adults and children.
