Cuomo Says Stay Safe in Hot Weather

In a statement today, Governor Andrew Cuomo is reminding everyone to take precautions with the temperatures soaring up as excessive heat is predicted in New York State. 

Governor Cuomo said, “the weather forecast for the next few days predicts temperatures to reach the 90s, and New Yorkers should be aware of the potentially life-threatening dangers of excessive heat, and take action to protect themselves and their loved ones.” 

The New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services offers tips to help you stay safe.  According to DHSES  Commissioner Jermone Hauer, "drinking plenty of fluids, wearing light-colored clothing and remaining in an air-conditioned environment" will keep you safe in extreme heat. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heat causes more than 650 preventable deaths in the United States each year with 7,233 heat-related deaths reported from 1999-2009. 

The DOH and DHSES says to minimize, if possible, strenuous activity and exercise, especially during the sun's peak hours - 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
