    Can Our Community Effectively Respond to a Damaging Heatwave?

    Extreme heat can happen anywhere, but communities across the southern United States are especially vulnerable to dangerous heat waves. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, heat waves kill more people on average each year in the US than any other natural disaster. Major heat events like the 2022 heat dome in the Pacific Northwest highlight the existential threats facing towns and cities during spikes in temperatures. As climate change increases the frequency, duration, and intensity of heat waves, communities must prioritize planning and response capacity.

    When excessive heat emergencies trigger widespread health issues, overwhelm first responders, disrupt critical utilities, or endanger lives, impacted communities rely on specialized partners to augment emergency services. Assistance may include establishing cooling centers, conducting welfare checks on vulnerable residents, providing public transportation to cooling centers, coordinating with utilities to reduce brownouts, distributing AC units and water, offering home weatherization incentives, identifying heat hazards and response gaps, and more. With summer heat waves worsening under climate change, establishing robust contingency partners allows efficient mobilization as these meteorological emergencies unfold. For communities prone to dangerous heat, having experts ready to assist can make the difference between barely coping and saving lives.
