[ARCHIVED] Emergency Preparedness Amidst COVID-19

The logistical and social complexities of COVID-19 are converging with what scientists are projecting to be an above-average season for hurricanes, extreme heat, inland and coastal flooding, and wildfires. Additionally, there is growing awareness among city leaders that communities of color and vulnerable populations are disproportionately impacted by both the virus and climate change. In cooperation with several trusted external organizations, our federal partners at the National League of Cities (NLC) have produced a short guide and resource list on Emergency Preparedness Amidst COVID-19 that includes tips on effectively managing sheltering and evacuations, resident communication and preparedness, and improving local response capacity in advance of extreme events.
