CDC Heat & Health Tracker

Extreme heat events have long threatened public health in the United States. The CDC Heat & Health Tracker provides local heat and health information so communities can better prepare for and respond to extreme heat events.

Extreme heat can lead to heat stroke, heat cramps, heat exhaustion, dehydration, and death. Anyone can be at risk, but some are more vulnerable, including pregnant women, people with heart or lung conditions, young children, older adults, athletes, and outdoor workers.

This tool creates a county profile for the user's region, providing specific information on the area's vulnerable populations, how extreme heat events are changing in the community, and critical resources available during an extreme heat event.
