As temperatures in Maryland start heating up, make sure to take the necessary precautions to avoid heat-related illnesses. While anyone can be a victim of heat-related illness, highest risk groups include people under age of 5 or over age 65, people with chronic illness, people taking certain medications, and those who are exercising or working outdoors. Citizens seeking relief from the current heat are encouraged to utilize public buildings (libraries and community centers), commercial establishments or friends and family for a cooler environment if air-conditioning is not available.
