Climate and Health Toolkits

Image of people in a modern work setting collaborating around a table.

We created toolkits to help local governments, local health departments, and citizens in Wisconsin preparing for and responding to different weather-related emergencies.

We also created one-page fact sheets to accompany each toolkit, which are intended for a general audience.

These toolkits and fact sheets include background information, practical response strategies, and communication tools (such as media releases, talking points, definitions, and useful reference materials).
