On August 31, 2019, the O‘ahu Community Heat Assessment, lead by the City & County of Honolulu Office of Climate Change, Sustainability & Resiliency and community volunteers, collected heat and humidity data across O‘ahu in one of the largest heat campaigns of the year. In early February 2020, the group released their results and promoted their story to local press.

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.
