HRSA will host community leaders and advocates for a discussion about their experiences during recent wildfires.  Weather-related disasters that also include tornadoes, hurricanes, and floods are expected to become more frequent and severe as a result of climate change, with more challenges to preparedness and response in rural areas.   The HHS Maternal-Child Health (MCH) Emergency Planning toolkit includes considerations for rural populations and highlights promising practices.
