Heat-related Illness

Summer in North Texas means sweltering temperatures and potentially unsafe conditions.

Residents should be mindful of the potential health risks that can result from an increase in temperatures.

The heat can cause heat cramps, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and even death.

People 18 to 50 years old are most affected by heat-related illnesses in Dallas County.

Remember, heat-related illnesses are preventable!
