What is heat stroke and how it is prevented?

The planet’s average surface temperature has risen about 2°f since late 19th century. 2016 was the warmest year on record. Rising temperatures will likely lead to increased air pollution, longer allergy season, spread of insect born diseases, heavier rain storms & flooding and frequent heat waves. Heat related illnesses include heat rash, sun burns, heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. These illnesses can cause serious harm to health & life.
Public awareness and education is the single most important tool for prevention of heat stroke. People should stay indoors, use electric fans, take cool bath/shower, wear light weight & loose clothes, consume more water, stay in shady areas and wear hats to avoid heat stroke. Parents should never leave their children in parked closed cars.
