Summer in Arizona is the deadliest time of the year. With temperatures regularly hovering between 110 and 115 degrees, the homeless are particularly vulnerable, especially when they lack access to drinking water.

According to the Phoenix Rescue Mission, an average of 118 people die every year from excessive heat, with 95 percent of those deaths occurring between May and September. Many of the victims are homeless. The Phoenix Rescue Mission’s Code:Red Summer Heat Relief initiative supplies the homeless with resources to survive the blazing heat.
