Heatwave Plan

Updated 18 July 2016

Hampshire County Council’s Heatwave Plan sets out how the County Council plans for heatwaves and the actions we will take to protect the public, service users and staff in the event of a heatwave.

The plan is updated every year to reflect national guidance and learning from previous heatwaves.

The aim of the plan is to raise awareness of the effects of high temperatures on people’s health, particularly specific vulnerable groups, and to provide advice on how to mitigate the adverse effects of heat.
