    Heat-Related Illnesses

    Summers in Wisconsin are known for long, sun-filled days spent outdoors. However, the sun can become too powerful for human bodies, resulting in heat-related illnesses. These illnesses are some of the most dangerous weather-related conditions that occur during the peak heat months of July and August.

    WHA Information Center data from 2020 show patients aged 60-80 years old had the highest visit counts due to a heat-related illness. The average age of patients suffering heat-related illness that year was 60. Those aged 61-70 years old had the largest total charge amount of any age group. Males accounted for 59% of all heat-related visits that year. Dane County registered the highest visit counts for heat-related illnesses.
