Heat Awareness Month 2017

Mayors in Las Cruces, NM, El Paso, TX, and Ciudad Juàrez, Chihuahua, are declaring May as "Heat Awareness Month." In a region-wide effort to reduce illness and deaths related to extreme heat, each city is hosting events where they will distribute heat awareness materials, and launching a social media campaign with tips on how to stay cool during the hot summer. Look to your city's resilience and sustainability offices, and their twitter and facebook pages, for more information on events.
