Heat Stroke vs Heat Exhaustion

Heat Safety

As the temperatures rise this season, if you hike, do it right! Be aware of the difference of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Drink lots of water, wear sunblock and a hat to protect you from the elements.

The City of Phoenix sponsors many cooling and hydration stations for the community to seek respite. For a full listing of locations across the city and county, please visit: Heat Relief Network.
