The National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) Interagency Communications Group will be holding a heat season awareness social media campaign during the week of May 16th, 2022. This campaign is a federal collaboration on heat communication to raise awareness about the risk of extreme heat, and to provide audiences with information about preparedness and actions in order to prevent heat-related illness and death. The campaign is taking place the week of May 16th in order to reach citizens at the start of the heat season, as heat-related illnesses and death are largely preventable.
In this social media campaign, participating agencies will be sharing resources, guides, infographics, and key messages related to heat and health. Agencies will be posting their own content, as well as sharing the content of other participating agencies. Agency leadership, including NOAA Administrator Dr. Richard Spinrad and EPA Administrator Michael Regan, will also be participating in the campaign. Participating agencies in this NIHHIS social media campaign include CDC, Department of Labor, EPA, FEMA, NHTSA, NIOSH, NOAA, OASH/OCCHE, OSHA, SAMHSA, and USDA Forest Service.
