Rising temperatures in King County

Beat The Heat: How to stay cool and safe

When temperatures and humidity rise, so does the danger of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Older adults, young children, and people with mental illness and chronic diseases are at highest risk for heat-related illness. But even young and healthy individuals can suffer in heat if they participate in strenuous physical activities during hot weather.
