Heat Health: Infants and Children

Infants and children are at a uniquely high risk of health impacts related to heat.

When a heat advisory is in effect, caregivers must pay particular attention to the necessary precautionary measures on behalf of infants and children in their care.

Caregivers must also actively monitor infants and children for symptoms of heat impact.

Remember: infants and children depend on their caregivers to protect them from health risks, and keep them safe.

Infants and children may not be able to understand or explain their symptoms.

Take precautions to prevent them from experiencing heat-related symptoms in the first place.
