On August 17th at 3pm EDT, the second webinar of the series, “Conducting Heat Vulnerability Indices,” will take place and will highlight communities that are examining heat risk exposure and vulnerability.
Key discussions will explore population, demographics, and health information to detail where the most at-risk residents live in order to characterize their risk factors and guide appropriate interventions. Presentations will feature techniques for creating heat vulnerability maps and how to use them to inform mitigation planning efforts.
