Photos by Tim Wagner for Partnership for the Public's HealthClimate change brings with it growing numbers of extreme heat days. Cooling stations and good planning can save lives during heat events, and cool roofs and urban parks reduce heat effects and offer places for physical activity and social connection. Tracking and surveillance are the first steps.

PHI’s work on tracking heat vulnerability and heat-related illness and death in California and the U.S. provides the data to identify which areas and individuals are most vulnerable, and to formulate strategies to minimize heat impact.
