Tucson Living - Heat related death

Posted: Updated:

It’s that time of year, when the heat can threaten lives.

According to the national weather service, the biggest “weather-related killer” is the heat.

The Arizona Department of Health Services says, warning signs come in stages:

  • Starting with thirst followed my muscle cramps.
  • If you're coming down with heat exhaustion you might feel dizzy and nauseous.
  • The next stage is heat stroke, which involves vomiting, throbbing headache and a weak pulse.
  • If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, call 911 right away.
