Heat and Your Safety

When the temperature goes up, it is important to be careful while performing activities and to stay cool.  Your body is designed to function within a certain temperature range.  As it gets too hot it starts to shutdown and cease to function properly.  If it gets too hot and cannot cool fast enough it can lead to severe medical issues, up to and including death.  This is known as hyperthermia. 

It is important to watch for signs of hyperthermia. 

The State of Michigan has more information about the warning signs of hyperthermia.
