Plan ahead for heat dangers - young and old are higher risk


Everyone is susceptible to heat related illnesses, but children, including infants, younger than 5 years of age and adults older than 65, are at higher risk, Crow Wing County Community Services reported.

The high risk category also includes anyone with a pre-existing illness, those with mental health conditions, and/or those who work or play in the sun for prolonged periods of time such as highway workers, farmers, anglers and golfers.
