Monitor those at high risk
Although anyone at any time can suffer from heat-related illness, some people are at greater risk than others. Those groups include infants and young children, people 65 years of age or older, and people who are overweight. Visit adults at risk at least twice a day and closely watch them for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
