Heat waves are extended periods of extreme heat, often accompanied by high humidity. These conditions can be dangerous and even life-threatening for humans who don't take the proper precautions. Heat kills by pushing the human body beyond its limits. In extreme heat and high humidity, evaporation is slowed and the body must work extra hard to maintain a normal temperature. Learn how to prepare for and survive a heat wave by following a few simple rules based on FEMA protocols.
Weather-related disasters continue to claim lives and create damage costs running into the billions each year. The Disaster Survival Series, based on FEMA protocols, focuses on what people can do before, during and after a major event to protect themselves and their property. Also included in each guide are smartphone QR codes that link to the websites of various emergency services agencies.
