The Los Angeles County Operational Area (LACOA) is known for its famous sunshine, beaches, mountains and deserts, but on occasions the area may experience Extreme Heat in the Antelope and Santa Clarita Valleys, San Fernando and San Gabriel Valleys, and other parts of the LACOA. During periods of Extreme Heat, there may be an increase in heat exhaustion, heat cramps and sunstroke.
Heat may worsen the affects of poor air quality in areas of heavy smog. If you plan to be outdoors, take precautions to protect yourself from the heat.
