Emergency Response and Climate Change

Emergency Response and Climate Change

Climate Change creates a need for preparedness and an understanding of emergency response, because in a warming climate, disaster strikes more often. With wild fires, rising sea levels and unpredictable weather patters on the rise, it is essential to have environmental health professionals equipped with the best information to work within these unprecedented conditions. Check out NEHA's course offerings to learn more about how you can be prepared.

Climate Change and Economics

The impacts of climate change include the economy. If it is not addressed, then the cost is great—not just the financial cost, but also the environmental and social costs. Investing in sustainable, low-carbon, and resilient infrastructure will save money, preserve the environment, and provide for healthy communities.
