  Heat Stress Awareness and Prevention program talks about heat cramps, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and prevention of these heat-related illnesses. During summertime, the risk of heat illness or dying of over-exposure from the effects of heat becomes greater. Workers whose jobs are outside are at risk as well as professional athletes. Every year, too many workers are hospitalized or die from heat-related illness. Our body is covered with 22 square feet of skin. The skin protects our bodies from infections and injuries and cools our body's internal engine - something like a giant radiator with 2.6 million sweat glands. At the underside of our brain is the hypothalamus which regulates body temperature and the release of hormones. Should we become dehydrated and overheated; the hypothalamus may malfunction making us unable to control our core body temperature. The result is often death if not recognized and treated immediately.
