The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns that heat stroke ‘can cause death or permanent disability if emergency treatment is not provided.’

But do you know the signs and symptoms to watch for when it comes to heat stroke and heat exhaustion?

“Heat-related illnesses, like heat exhaustion or heat stroke, happen when the body is not able to properly cool itself,” according to the CDC. “While the body normally cools itself by sweating, during extreme heat, this might not be enough. In these cases, a person’s body temperature rises faster than it can cool itself down. This can cause damage to the brain and other vital organs.”
