Heat health warning system

A heat health warning system (HHWS) is a system, usually initiated by public health authorities, to reduce the health impacts of heat waves. It consists of two main components: one is responsible for the identification and forecasting of heat waves with serious health impacts, and a second initiates and coordinates public health measurements to mitigate the most serious health impacts of the heat wave effect (Kovats and Ebi 2006; WHO 2004).
