Summer heat waves have become more frequent and increasingly intense over the past 20 years. In a normal year, about 175 Americans are killed by extreme heat. Among natural disasters, only extreme cold, not hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, or earthquakes, takes a greater toll. Based on international protocols, Extreme Heat Survival focuses on what people can do before, during and after a heat wave 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. Laminated for durability, this portable guide is an ideal source of quick and accurate information. Made in the USA.
