Heat and Smoke

Extreme weather events are becoming more common. In recent years we've had the hottest temperatures on record and wildfire smoke has been a recurring problem.

These issues affect our comfort, but they also have health impacts — many died in 2021 from the affects of the heat dome. What can we do?

One of the first things is to do a bit of planning and preparation. Take a look at our checklist, Housing Co-ops and Coping with Extreme Heat and Smoke(PDF).

We also have an article from our Sustainability Newsletters that looked at adaptations for heat.
