The National Weather Service Explains Impacts of Extreme Heat

Extreme heat is a growing threat, nationally and globally. With temperatures rising—especially in traditionally cooler regions—it’s crucial that organizations understand how extreme heat impacts their people, facilities, and business.

In part one of our two-part series on extreme heat, Paul Yura, Warning Coordination Meteorologist at the National Weather Service, shares significant heat trends throughout the U.S. and how organizations can prepare their people and property. 

Listen to our conversation with Paul to learn about:

  • Tips to keep employees safe during heat waves
  • The impacts of extreme heat on infrastructure
  • Early and immediate symptoms of heat-related illnesses
  • Why organizations should develop and implement extreme heat plans and trainings
