Maricopa County Confirms First Heat Death of the Season

A reminder to keep the kids safe and cool as the Valley prepares for a record-breaking weekend of extreme temperatures!

While many heat related deaths occur outside, 40% occur indoors. The majority of those either don’t have their air conditioning turned on or it doesn’t function. Many people struggle with paying the AC bills in the summer time. Utility companies are sensitive to this fact and have programs to assist individuals. In addition, government and community-based organizations also have support services and cooling centers people can go to get out of the heat. Energy assistance programs and locations for water and refuge stations can be found at heataz.com.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more people die in the U.S from heat than from all other natural disasters combined. Last year, 84 heat associated deaths occurred in Maricopa County due to exposure to environmental heat. People suffer heat-related illness when their bodies are unable to compensate and properly cool themselves. Common sense practices will keep you safe and healthy during the scorching days of summer including:
  • Drink water before you get thirsty to prevent dehydration
  • Don’t rely on fans as your primary source of cooling
  • Come indoors frequently to an air conditioned location to cool your core body temperature
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat, sunscreen, and lightweight clothes
  • NEVER leave your kids, pets, and others who may rely on you inside of a parked car
  • Check on friends and neighbors, especially the elderly, to ensure sufficient cooling and supplies
  • Seek medical care immediately if you have, or someone you know has, symptoms of heat-related illness like muscle cramps, headaches, vomiting, confusion, no longer sweating, and rapid heart rate.
