It’s an automatic mechanism that protects your insides from overheating.But sometimes it’s so hot and humid that sweating just isn’t enough. And when the body heats up faster than it can cool itself down, you might be at risk for a heatstroke.Heatstroke is considered a medical emergency because severe overheating can damage your internal organs your brain tissue is especially sensitive to heat. If it’s not treated right away, there’s a risk of permanent disability or death, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).But if you know what signs to look for, you can help prevent heatstroke and other heat injuries in yourself and others.

If you’re out in the heat, seek shade when you can. If you’re exercising, start slow and pace yourself.If you’re staying inside, use air conditioning. Go to amall, public library, or local heat-reliefshelter if you don’t have AC in your home. Cool showers and baths help, too, but be wary of relying on fans.
