Session Overview

Climate change is a public health priority and the increasing frequency of heat waves across Canada poses a variety of human health risks. In effect, heat emergency preparedness is essential for most Canadian cities. 

GIS helps you prepare for heat emergencies and reduce strain on public services. You get access to real-time environmental, socio-demographic, and health facility data – all of which can be readily integrated with your resources, assets, and emergency crews. 

In this webinar, you’ll see where to access specialized data and emergency response GIS templates to support your workflows for public health emergency preparedness. 

Key Points

  • Visualize real-time environmental data for ongoing heat situational awareness 
  • Facilitate better team collaboration with a map interface that can save you time in an emergency 
  • Protect the most vulnerable in your community using an emergency management template that can be loaded with critical data and analytic tools 

Intended Audience

This webinar is designed for government employees who are responsible for planning and responding to emergencies, including those in emergency management, public health, environment and climate change, and social services.
