Heatwave plan for England 2012 published

The heatwave plan and accompanying guidance is intended to raise public and professional awareness on how to prepare in case of severe hot weather and potential heatwaves this summer.

The plan has been developed in partnership with the Health Protection Agency, and is supported by the Met Office. It sets out the risks to health of exposure from severe heat, and the steps people can take to protect their own health, and to reduce the risks of illness and death in the most vulnerable people.
