We review a system that performs accurate computation of body temperature elevation and sweating by combining electromagnetic and thermal analysis with weather forecast data toward the risk assessment and management. We validate our computational code by comparing with different exposure scenarios, and then extend to estimate allowable time of firefighters as a computational example. We also review our newly-designed system for public enlightenment toward reducing heat stroke patients. Finally, we apply the system to estimate the number of patients of heat stroke in summer.
