We envision Missoula as a caring community, focusing on health, preparedness, personal and community resilience to create a healthy community in which people thrive, even in the midst of climate change stress. Our community will enhance our climate-related disaster and threats preparedness, educate Missoulians about the climate-health link, and build more resilient individuals and community.
Enhance Community Disaster and Threats Preparedness
Link Health and Climate Change
Build Personal and Community Resilience
Summer 2017- check out our Clean Air Cool Places map to know where to go when it's hot or smoky. Our Summer Smart program is all about staying healthy and building resilience in light of changing summer conditions - especially wildfire smoke and extreme heat. We can expect more smoke and heat in the future.
