Dangers of Extreme Heat
The State Department of Public Health (DPH) warns that extreme heat can be dangerous, especially for the elderly and young children.  As part of a detailed list of tips and precautions on their website, DPH advises monitoring those who are at increased risk of heat-related illness, including:
Infants and young children who rely on others to regulate their environment and provide fluids
People over 65 years of age 
People who exert too much during exercise or work and become dehydrated
People who are physically ill or who take certain medications may be affected by extreme heat

DPH recommends checking on adults who are at increased risk twice per day during extreme heat, and monitoring young children throughout hot weather for signs of heat-related illness. 

2-1-1 maintains an up-to-date listing of active cooling centers, including location information, hours of operation, and other pertinent details. To find local cooling centers, visit the 2-1-1 website or dial 2-1-1.
