CDC Launches Heat & Health Tracker Tool

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released a first-of-its-kind online tool to help emergency and public health planners prepare for and respond to extreme heat events. The Heat & Health Tracker provides timely, user-friendly, local-level heat and health data and information that can be used to:

  • Inform decisions and public health actions,
  • Describe and locate vulnerable populations, and
  • Determine resources and potential needs.

The CDC Heat & Health Tracker was developed by a collaboration between the CDC Climate and Health Program, which empowers communities to protect public health from a changing climate, and the CDC Environmental Public Health Tracking Program, which develops tools, applications, and products that utilize environmental health data for public health action.

About Us

The NIHHIS is an integrated system that builds understanding of the problem of extreme heat, defines demand for climate services that enhance societal resilience, develops science-based products and services from a sustained climate science research program, and improves capacity, communication, and societal understanding of the problem in order to reduce morbidity and mortality due to extreme heat. The NIHHIS is a jointly developed system by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
