U.S. climate resilience: Building health care sector resilience


Health care organizations play a key role in community resilience. Climate change, by increasing the intensity and frequency of some extreme weather events, is creating complex hazards that challenge accepted baseline assumptions for infrastructure capabilities, redundancies, and disaster preparedness and response—and this means a need for new building design thresholds. This government toolkit has been developed to assist organizations engaged in health care facility climate resilience as they improve their response to extreme weather events.
