Natural Disaster Emergency Preparedness

Excessive Heat or Cold


Extreme Cold

Heavy snowfall and extreme cold weather can immobilize an entire region.  Even areas that normally experience mild winters can be hit with extreme cold.

Extreme Heat

Heat kills by pushing the human body beyond its limits. In extreme heat and high humidity, evaporation is slowed and the body must work extra hard to maintain a normal temperature.

Most heat disorders occur because the victim has been overexposed to heat or has over-exercised for his or her age and physical condition. Older adults, young children, and those who are sick or overweight are more likely to succumb to extreme heat.
