Climate and Health Toolkits

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).

How did we do? Take this survey to help us improve our toolkits!
