    give sb. the heads up?

    She said some students suffered culture shock because of the belief that everyone loved Americans. "We are giving them the heads up that it is a bit more heated because of the war in Iraq," Ms Houston said.

    Above is quoted from an article in TheMorningNews. I looked up the word "head" in dictionaries but failed to find the meaning of this expression. Anyone please help me out.

    Thanks in anticipation!
