Health Information and Emergency Preparedness Trainings in Libraries of Vulnerable Neighborhoods

This pilot training program will contribute to community resilience-building efforts in Philadelphia to counteract the effects of weather-related emergencies including extreme heat events, hurricanes and flooding. Training components will include an introduction to online health preparedness resources, a preparedness kit demonstration, and an assessment of community training needs and interests. Trainings will occur at neighborhood libraries in geographic areas identified as having higher annual average surface temperatures than other parts of the city.
