Workshops & Events
The Extreme Weather Challenge Workshop helps prepare for extreme heat and other weather-related emergencies.
Organize a workshop in your neighborhood! Here's you need to do: arrange available dates, times, and a location, invite 15 or more people and plan follow-ups. Provide refreshments and snacks if desired. We will provide the facilitator, audio-visual equipment, and free workbooks and guides.
Our 3-hour interactive workshop takes groups through three parts.
1. Learn about managing heat illness.
2. Assess vulnerabilities and needs in heat-related emergencies.
3. Decide on actions for your neighborhood to take to be ready for a heat emergency without electricity.
4. Prepare for future challenges.
