Building on the City of Toronto, Ontario’s Hot Weather Response Plan, ICF is working with the City of Toronto to develop a “trigger” to identify when an extended heat emergency should be declared. The aim is to facilitate a more robust community-wide response commensurate with the level of risk of deep and prolonged heat waves. This project will provide organizations responsible for raising public awareness and preserving public health with a greater ability to understand, prepare, and adapt to climate change-induced heat emergencies to minimize heat-related illness and premature mortality anticipated with severe heat waves.
