ABSTRACT

Abnormal climate events are increasing the risk of heat waves and causing economic and social damage. This study draws implications of the present heat wave cognition and responses from the result of the heat wave cognition survey, and establishes baseline data for the efficient countermeasures. The results show while the heat wave is seriously perceived to the most respondents, they do not aware the behavior against it. This suggests the necessities of the heat wave information delivery system and education of the emergency instructions. As eighty percent of the shelter visitors indicated the cooling effect of the shelter, it could help to efficiently reduce the heat wave damage through the operation of the shelters. Especially, to improve the effectiveness of the various countermeasures, currently being applied or planned, citizens’ awareness and use of those need to be increased, and this requires long-term effort of the central and the local governments.
