Summary
Every year, there are dozens of preventable worker deaths and thousands more workers become ill from extreme heat or humid conditions.

Today is National Heat Awareness Day. Declared a national holiday by the National Weather Service in 2013, the annual observance was created to spread awareness on the dangers of extreme heat and heat-related illnesses. 

Extreme heat and humidity is the number one cause of weather-related deaths in the U.S., with over 700 Americans dying every year. Knowing the signs of heat exhaustion and staying hydrated is the best way to avoid heat-related illnesses.
