With the temperatures beginning to heat up, the Red Cross is trying to help you prepare.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says excessive heat has caused more deaths in recent years than all other weather events including tornadoes, floods and hurricanes.
The Red Cross warns that everyone is at risk when the temperatures rise above 90 degrees.
The elderly and very young are most susceptible illnesses related to the heat.
Heat-related illnesses can cause serious injury and even death if no properly treated.
Warning signs include nausea, dizziness, flushed or pale skin, heavy sweating and headaches.
The Red Cross says if you get overheated, you should move to a cool place, drink cold water and use ice packs or cool wet cloths against the skin.
