  3. Interior Health, Health Alert Response Workshop, 2019

British Columbians are experiencing more frequent and extreme heat events. As the risk of health impacts from extreme heat is expected to continue rising, it is critical we work together to across sectors to prepare and increase the resilience of our communities. Interior Health is working on a regional project to develop Heat Alert and Response Systems (HARS) supporting community and social service providers, emergency management officials, and public health prepare for and respond to extreme heat events. Kerri Klein and Stacy Barter from SHIFT Collaborative designed and facilitated a stakeholder engagement workshop on extreme heat and response workshops in March 2019.
