In last year’s May-September warm season, rates of emergency department visits for heat-related illness substantially increased across several U.S. regions compared with previous years, especially among males and adults aged 18–64 years, according to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Heat waves are becoming more frequent, hotter and longer lasting than in previous decades. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting above-normal temperatures across the midwestern, western and southern lower 48 states during the summer 2024 season. Heat-related illness will continue to be a significant public health concern. Extreme heat kills more Americans than any other weather event, but heat-related illnesses are preventable. The public often lack awareness about how dangerous extreme heat can be, and effective mitigation of the risks of extreme heat requires a multi-disciplinary response, shared across multiple agencies.
