Extreme Weather Events

Extreme weather events can cause public health risks so it is important to plan for such events to protect health when the weather is extreme.    

Our Public Health advice for the main types of extreme weather events in Ireland has been moved from these pages to the Health Protection Surveillance Centre website. Please visit www.hpsc.ie/a-z/environmentandhealth/severeweatherevents/ (opens in new window) for health advice relating to weather events like flooding, cold weather and heatwaves.
