(Note - this webinar was moved from April 8th to July 8th to accomodate the impact on public health teams from COVID-19 in April.)
Summer 2019 was one of the hottest in recorded history. Currently, heat kills more people in the U.S. than any other weather hazard and heat waves are projected to worsen over the next 30 years. The most vulnerable populations such as senior citizens, residents in poor housing stock without air conditioning, and those experiencing homelessness are at the highest risk from heat. As heat waves become more frequent and intense, it will be increasingly important for local governments to develop community response plans for heat. Join the Environmental Resilience Institute as we discuss how extreme temperatures can impact your community and strategies for developing extreme heat response plans.
