What are the details?
Heat.gov is intended to meet the growing demand for an authoritative heat and health tool from heat resilience officers, doctors, nurses, first responders, researchers, and the general public. It integrates maps, data, and information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Weather Service, the Climate and Health Outlook developed by the Department of Health and Human Services, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Heat and Health Tracker, and other governmental and nonfederal resources.
This access to information enables communities to make informed decisions daily, as well as plan for the heat weeks and months ahead.
