Climate change brings with it a wide range of long-term everyday stressors as well as more frequent and more intense extreme weather events. Environmental Justice communities are often those first hit and hardest impacted by weather emergencies. Knowing what to expect and preparation for your household can reduce the impacts of extreme weather and make your household more resilient to climate change.
Take steps toward climate resiliency by knowing what to expect and preparing for your household:
