PDPH Summer Heat Resources

During extreme heat, it’s important to check on your neighbors, especially older adults and people with chronic health conditions who are more likely to get sick and anyone who lives alone. Make sure they have access to air conditioning, are staying hydrated, and know how to call for help if they need it.

These resources are available during a Heat Health Emergency:

Contact the Public Health Preparedness Program at or (215) 429-3016 to schedule an in-person or virtual workshop about staying safe during extreme heat, get printed copies of heat flyers and brochures mailed to your organization, and discuss your ideas of how we can support your community to stay safe from extreme heat this summer.

Stay connected to important information by signing up for free alerts from the city. Text READYPHILA to 888-777 for free texts direct to your phone.
