Resources for People Experiencing Homelessness During Extreme Summer Heat


7/2/2018

Extreme summer temperatures can be particularly dangerous for people experiencing homelessness in our community, who are at higher risk of exposure-related conditions. If you are concerned about yourself or someone you see on the street, please contact the FirstStep Street Outreach team, or call 911 if it is a medical emergency. 

According to the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, “awareness of the importance of keeping as cool as possible and drinking liquids during hot weather is important for prevention of heat disorders.”
